Cat Forms!
Because I lack the experience of creating large metal sculpture free hand, I am building plywood cat forms that will be covered in chicken wire (and various forms of hardware cloth) then slathered with a couple layers of papier-mâché made from drywall mud.

The completed forms will then be used to shape each cat sculpture. The drywall mud is flame and heat resistant so I can tack weld the metal without starting a fire!
