Yes, it is very labor intensive putting these sculptures together. I started by digging through my thousands of watch pieces to find inspiration and pieces that I thought would work. The wings had to be light so I used the coiled springs (I uncoiled them and cut them smaller). Gears and cogs make up the detail pieces.
Here's my son helping me pic out pieces. Such a good helper!
The body of my bat is a watch body (with the face and top gears removed). His face is a watch face, cut and folded on itself to form a slight cone. Gears and cogs for eyes and tiny gears around the body completes it!
All I have left to do is mount it in a shadow box and send it off!! I'm excited to hear what Chris says!!
