Default The Woodlot Incident

Phew! My latest project is finally done after working on it for 51 days and over 140 hours. I told you in my teasers that this one has a surprise and hopefully you won't be disappointed. Now you'll finally know what the outhouse and those mechanics is all about.

And, of course, there is a PDF attached or those wanting to see more photos and understand how it was made. This project took a lot of intense small detail work but I'm happy with the result and hope you enjoy it too.

Holy sh*t!!!

Oliver...I'm speechless

Now that I've gotten back up off the floor, did you use Fimo for the modeling (Bert and Bob)?

Beyond words, Oliver. Be hard to beat that one, and worth every minute you put into it. Just fantastic.

Really really cool Ollie. Painting alone would have tried my patience.

I used SuperSculpey for the figures and a combination of Sculpey and Milliput for the tree. SuperSculpey (like FIMO) is a heat-hardening polymer clay and Milliput is a two-part self hardening modeling compound. There are more details about the sculpting process for Bert and Bob in the PDF.

Simply outside the realm of my imagination! Well conceived and executed . . . Clever just doesn't begin to describe!
