Fabrication 3

I've started adding the sweeping strips of metal that form the "skin" of the sculpture...

There's very little tolerance when getting the adjoining edges to align.  The most practical way is to make a cardboard template for each strip:

It's fairly demanding as even a gap less than a millimetre is quite obvious.   Also, as I work further along the fingers, access gets more and more restricted.  Fortunately, the front of the hand is full of holes which I can work through.

That does make for some particularly fiddly welding though!

Three-and-a-half fingers to go...
