|The next step was the armature for the mother
and child. Johnny and I worked together to get this right. I used measurements
from Melinda to get the shoulder width, limbs and body length right. Since
this was to be life size, I could do this but I had to keep in mind that
the armature was only the 'bones'. On top of that would be layers of styrofoam,
and Winterstone mixture. That made the calculations much more difficult.
I'm sure there is a mathematical way to estimate this but remember that
I am untrained. I WORK through to knowledge. It is hard-earned.
