Blocking and balloons

What weird thing is this you ask?It’s the honeybee and honeycomb projectI’ve been working onand nope, it’s not some kinda of covered ball or round cushion, it’s a HAT!

So whatexactly isgoing on here? Iread the other day thata good way to block a hat is by drying it over a balloon. The honeybees really need to be blocked for the wings to show and make them recognisable as bees.

I really like the way I decided to decrease the top of the hat. Final images should be coming soon – once the hat dries and I secure my model (she doesn’t have much choice since she’s my daughter).
