Hands For A Halloween Scarecrow

If you’re a fan of American literature then you probably know that the thing the scarecrow wanted the most from the Wizard of Oz was a brain.  And that’s a great thing for fictional scarecrows to strive for, but when it comes to non-fictional scarecrows, more often than not they’re in need of more utilitarian things, such as hands.  So if your scarecrow is in need of hands then let James Mitchell be your Wizard with his tutorial on making Hands for a Halloween Scarecrow.

Actually, whether or not you have need for hands for a scarecrow, this tutorial is worth watching because the bailing wire framework that it is based on is a great method for any pair of hands.  It allows for a rigid skeleton that is still completely flexible for posing.





Items needed to complete this include:

  • Bailing wire
  • Foam padding
  • Compressed air hose
  • Burlap
