In Chinese fancy lantern and the ACG 1, I have told about the flexibility of wire is not enough to express a complex cartoon character face. Then, how to make a  complex cartoon character face or human face in the lantern festival? The answers are two ways:

1.Use a special FRP  material which is translucent.

  • Merit: Can easliy finished the complex face or other complex shape.
  • Demerits: It’s not the traditional material of making the lantern, cultural connotation is very low.
  • Picture for example: You can see that the fairs faces were  translucent.

2.Using high-level shape benchworker and art designing try to finished it.

  • Merit: Keeping the Chinese lantern original crafts, it will make many amazing lanterns.
  • Demerits: The product depends on the Chinese Lantern craftsmen, it’s cost much more money than using the FRP  material.
  • Picture for example: This was from Changfeng park of Shanghai Lantern Festival when we were in partnership with Disney.

As crafts of making Chinese lantern progresses, I think there would have much more ways to solve this problem.
