Week 1 - Our Better Half?

Siamese Twins

But only one of them went through puberty

I based this on a simple concept siamese twins living two different lives.

It also seemed simple and straightforward to do since only one of them would need to be changed manually.

Steps

1. Cutting the Wooden Doll

Used a saw to cut the doll down. Initially used my hands which cramped them a lot and then one of the shop staff helped me clamp it down and cut it.

3. Painting

I wasn't very patient with painting since I was mixing colors from scratch and just wanted to see what it looked like.

I used acrylic colors until I felt I go the coating right. Had to go through a few rounds because I realised that the darker color I initially wanted wouldn't have enough contrast to show the facial expressions.
