Make a form. Fill the form. Pack it in. Carve the snow.
This is the sculpture I’ve made and you can make one yourself
Make an 8′ snow sculpture by using plywood
Fill it up. Fluffy snow is best. But pound it down
Put on a ‘nose’ cone. A ratchet strap helps hold it together
Removing of the plywood. Looking good!
Flop it forward
Fold the plywood up and now you have your base
Carve it up! Easter Island Ed lives after a little bit of snow carving
One more before the big change. Big change? Whaaaat?
Big unexpected change
I’ve been working on eyes. I turn a birch log on my little lathe into eyes. Then I paint them. Then I place them on the snow sculpture.
