Step 1: Taping the Torso & Arms
Place the broomstick on your model’s back and start wrapping the packing tape around the person’s torso area- make sure not to get it too tight. Use enough tape that it will keep its form once you remove the model.
Tip: Create a few extra tape layers on the broomstick for support.
Additionally, place a broomstick on the back of one arm of your model start wrapping the arm and upper body to the collarbone area- DO NOT cover the neck with tape leave this for your foam head.
