Jeremy Shannon with help from John Shaw ran Ent making over two days for NWA members. Look below to see finished Ents and how they were made.
Photo of three finished Ents. Some of these can be seen in the photos below whilst being made. Starting with just wire, the end results can be very impressive.
Start by making a skeleton of the basic shape from twisted wire. Bulk it out with masking tape. Add a face, tree roots, detail areas and stick it to a base with epoxy putty (“green stuff”). Paint other areas with textured bark (silicone rubber with sand). Allow to dry. Paint. Glue on green foam and you have your very own Ent!
