This was one of the more fun parts to complete. I used a combination of bamboo strips and rattan for this area, and it turned out quite well. Because the joints were much closer together, the nose felt quite solid and strong and it gave the lion an identifiable feature. One step closer to becoming a lion!!!
Note: It was a bit tricky trying to get the dimensions of the certain parts as I was juggling to fit in my measure tape and measuring sticks into the model’s nose. I’m starting to become less anal about having exact measurements. Little imperfections don’t matter too much and give the lion a real feeling.
