The Art /Toy
|Poor little vinyl, helpless and mangled.|
|be quiet lil guy.. what's that? yer mouth is filled with resin.|
I know, I'm a nerd. ;)
|Stages of sanding, resin re-coats, sanding..etc etc...|
|did I say sanding? I meant wet sanding...|
and more sanding.
|It gets fun when the filler primer lets loose. I finally get to see my lil' guy's character try to come out.|
|I get Cray-zeh with the spray paint because I'm so hardcore. I'm so hardcore, I sleep witha teddy bear.|
|Modge podge is even more hardcore. But goldleaf is my vice.|
I adore it, I hate it, I love it- my dog eats it by accident. Think from there. Fancy!
|Painting the teenie tiny scene inside his tummy...I managed to keep ahold of my eyeballs before they fell out.|
|The next step was to create the heartless... |
So I made wire armatures and then got my 'magic sculpt' on.
|Creepy little guys, but cute all the same.... I was up late--Miss bug eyes.|
|Filler primer. Rock!|
|and waa-la! lil creepies....all painted and ready.|
|Stars from the ceiling inside the display travel up through the crown-|
This hole lets in light so the toy isn't sitting in darkness... he'd be sad.
|First Things First, After the measurements set, the construction begins!|
Thanks to Ahab's Shipyard for the awesome construction & display paint (ahem..Rick- :)

|The molding is cut, lines scribed, crown melted to position.|
|The Front heart design get's some love now, and Ahab's extra touch...|
|Primed and ready to be painted after days of milling, filling & sanding.|
|Finishing touches, I add sky, stars & place my little creatures to 'loom' in and creep...|
|Green Patina for roofing... nice touch. Key's fit, all is coming along. yee-who!|
|The final Display!|
