About this project

Project was to decorate a fibreglass model otter for auction to benefit Dartmoor National Park - auction in September 2017.
I decided to utilise my metal skills as well as the obvious painting method.
The pewter pelt was the result - requiring a coutoured former of aluminium gauze on which I secured, probably, more than 2000 pewter ‘hairs’.
All the commissioned otters will be exhibited around Dartmoor during the summer months.
