Making a pointe


I started this a few weeks ago and this is as far as it went. I am sure It will come in handy at some point. 



What's the pointe?

Pointe technique is the part of classical ballet technique that concerns pointe work, in which a ballet dancer supports all body weight on the tips of fully extended feet within pointe shoes.

Mean while I still have this giant pokey pile of recycled wire from my raid on TXRX labs last December. I need turn this s into a piece to get it out of my way. It is 1/2" wire cloth that was cut into rectangles to reinforce plaster molds used to cast aluminum parts. They were left in the elements after they were used and rusted into a beautiful patina of rust, stainless steel, and plaster.
