Iíve received some requests here and elsewhere for an explanation of the process I used to create the chain maille effect in my Self-Portrait Bust. To answer your questions, Iíve created a walkthrough of my quick application method for fantasy sculptures.
Itís not a perfect recreation of chain maille in any way, shape, or form, but it will provide a passable look you can manipulate to meet your particular needs. If you can use it, then Iím glad to have been of assistance.
I've included a sample of the document below. You can grab the complete tutorial in PDF form here: LINK
