Vincent Nguy is what I call creativity at its finest! I visited his blog often to check out how the lion is progressing, and from step 1, I was already amazed! He started with a broomstick handle and a metal base rim! For the pillow, he used a doggy bed. Also, instead of the traditional paper bindings, he used thin wire. Rather than building the frame with all bamboo strips, he also incorporated rattan strips. I’ve always thought about using rattan strips for the parts of a lion that has really tight curves. Now that I’ve seen it done, I’ll probably incorporate it into my next project. So cool!
Great job, Vincent! Congratulations! 😀
