After that we covered the coat hanger with a regular ladies stocking, pulling the stocking tightly around the wood, and tying it . Once we did this the sculpture really took shape. We then painted a couple of coats of watered down liquid glue and let the sculpture dry over night. Next, we imagined! What would our sculptures be? A fish? A whale’s tail? An octopus? We let our imaginations run wild. Finally, we painted our sculptures to create these one of a kind sculptures. What do you see? Do you see the creature or creation in each sculpture? Want to try this yourself? Then check out these instructions for a Wire-Stocking Sculpture.
