- I could hand sculpt the guitar with clay over foam.
- I could 3D scan Norma's guitar and have it reproduced in foam and clay
- I could get a real guitar and modify it.
For the budgets sake we have decided to go with the last option. So, it was put in the hands of the family to find a guitar. Ernie, Norma's brother and bass guitar player for the family band found the perfect guitar to be a part of this sculpture.
I'm glad that they were able to do this. I may have to actually anchor the guitar to the sculpture and I needed something that it was o.k. to destroy. Even so, I'm a guitar player and hurting this instrument in any way will cause the musical muse and the artistic muse great dissension.
The project is moving along. I can't wait for our photo sitting tomorrow with Angie, Norma's daughter.
