Hey everyone, I'm back and making apes! Ha ha. Just got home from Europe and I'm back in business, starting with this happy little orangutan sculpture.

Looking forward to a kick-ass new year! 2013 is going to be great.

DVD shards (over 30 DVDs used)
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Chrome paint
1 week work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural fur pattern. They usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!

Does it hurt to pick them up?

Not at all! It would only hurt if you ate it. :)
