Orangutan by SeanAvery Orangutan by SeanAvery
Hey everyone, I'm back and making apes! Ha ha. Just got home from Europe and I'm back in business, starting with this happy little orangutan sculpture.

Looking forward to a kick-ass new year! 2013 is going to be great.

DVD shards (over 30 DVDs used)
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Chrome paint
1 week work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural fur pattern. They usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!

Not at all! It would only hurt if you ate it. :)
