28 Sep, 2011

28 Sep, 2011

 

Pixi, ''not the way it SHOULD be done '' you havent just sprayed your other half in quick drying cement have you?

28 Sep, 2011

 

Aha! heheh maybe? That would be a good idea! aw but not Rick..some horrid person maybe lolol

28 Sep, 2011

 

I have a suggestion....... :)

28 Sep, 2011

 

He looks great,Pixi..love the way you have done all the folds in his jacket..especially the sleeves..so natural looking.Do you have to use something to stop him'cracking up' {not your jokes ha ha) in the winter ?
You should be so proud of the other man in your life..:o)

28 Sep, 2011

 

lol thanks Bloomer..I put PVA glue in the final coat of cment mix..I may do another coat of PVA once ive tweaked a little bit more..oh and his thimb came off! I dont know where it is..but I'm not too bothered about it.

28 Sep, 2011

 

You've probably dropped it in Guy's kitchen :)

28 Sep, 2011

 

LOL!

28 Sep, 2011

 

Not saying doing what or where it may have ended up!!! :)
Dinners burning..........noooooooooooooooooooooooooo

28 Sep, 2011

 

Might be in the sink! SOmeone made dinner?

28 Sep, 2011

 

Can anyone else smell burning? Pixie, that's just fab! In my last year at college, one of the post grad students made up his whole show with death masks of himself! Your sleepy gardener sooo reminds me of that! Well done! Don't let him get ruined in the winter!

28 Sep, 2011

 

hehe,,funny there was a guy in my year who did that too!!!! heh
Thanks..hopefully PVA glue will do the trick? I asked at keyline when I went to get cement..they said it should be fine..if not..he canny come inside! lol He cannot be moved now..way to heavy! aha :)))

29 Sep, 2011

29 Sep, 2011

 

thats realy cool pixi what did you use to make a full body mould . did you get some dentists amalgamate or plaster of paris . get a cow pat and wee in a bucket and mix it up and paint that on for making it green . its a bit smelly but works well . alsocant you getwire in things like the thumb before itsets that stops thingsfalling of . it looks realy cool nice one trixi x x .

30 Sep, 2011

 

lol Nosey I used mod roc! As I said I cant afford all expensive materials and I had lots of modroc so thats what i sued..then postcrete mix a bit of expanding foam and finally mortar mix and PVA glue hehee..i bet youre think omg what! All th joints had either metal rods of coat hangers..whatever to joing them..then hands and head were done as one..im not bothered baout his thumb..he could have choopped it off while pruning lol sPix ;)

30 Sep, 2011

 

i think its wicked . tiome will tell if you used the right materials but its got 2 options . it sounds like it will be fine . take care bye for now x x .

30 Sep, 2011

30 Sep, 2011

Great job.
