There really isn't much to the process, I had a concept drawing of the piece,planned where the joints would be located and divided the body according to the scale pattern I wanted to create. after that I used the appropriate tools to sculpt the material into the shapes I wanted.To manipulate the wax/clay mix I use an alcohol torch to heat up my tools. The wings required structure which is mostly wire and tinfoil. The biggest challenge is getting it done on time and not setting myself on fire. (again)

Only occasionally, and never intentionally. And I have had much better luck not doing that since I bought a shop jacket treated with nomex.
Occupational hazard.
