Setting up the model skeleton


I'm now finalizing the drawings for the next set of BDSM skeleton paintings. There is one pose that I had to set up, for a skeleton that is going to be tying up a human subject. My studio, unlike my old one on Belcher Street, does not have wooden rafters that make it easy to suspend the skeletons limbs into positions. The ceiling here is very high, and all there is up there are pipes, and a concrete ceiling.

I used monofilament line tied to drapery hooks, looped over the pipes up there. This did the trick, and I was able to set up my skeleton into the desired position.

  2. Hi - I purchased this guy (whom I named Friedrich) several years ago from Anatomical Supply Company. I think he was called "Mr. Flexible Skeleton" - it's a very good casting, and the spine has a little bit of flex to it.
