Nose #4, with first layer of pu-foam

1st layer of pu-foam. This is where the handicraft ends and the sculpturing begins.

Pu-foam on a metal grid does not expand homogeneously. I’ts full of holes, “warts” and “stalactites”. Thus the tip of the nose was much too voluminous and I had to take a good 10 cm off it. Alternatively, the “wings” were to small so extra layers were added there.
