And I tried to take a close up of the brooch, but as you might know, there are very few reference photos.
I am going to make this one mostly out of worbla, and I will only use scraps and leftovers from other projects (you can use all pieces of a worbla sheet you know)
Step one is still to cut out the general shape in cardboard (ah, my trusted cardboard)
And simply cover it with worbla and adding details.
Following the low tech road, I have just attached two safety pins (using worbla and not glue)
When I'm satisfied with the shape I prime it with gesso.
(gesso must be sanded down)
