LOVE this!! I just can’t get enough of his hands.

Thanks! Sycamore twigs... they're the best for this kind of stuff.

Sarwyn said...

Does that make it more durable? Is it a harder wood?

Rot said...

Definitely. The Blind Sentinels (2013) are still standing in my basement, and they are as firm as the day I made them. Sycamore wood is so dense and lasts for forever. All of my props that have wooden limbs or ribs are made of sycamore. Same goes for The Strawman...Made him in 2016 and he's still going strong.

That’s excellent! I haven’t seen sycamores where I’m at, so I’m not familiar with the wood. Very cool to think those guys, could just keep going on forever!

Sycamore eh? That's good to know! Amazing work as always.

Rot said...

Thanks!

And, yep, it's the best wood for this kind of stuff. Any other kind of wood gets very brittle very fast.
