Well, I finally got up the courage to ask my wife to indulge me in the hobby of making a WOF scratchbuilt bucket. And after seeing what I have so far, she's just about to forgive me for temporarily turning the living room into a war-zone of plastic shavings.
It all began with finding Alan's excellent templates I had plenty of cardboard laying around and knew I could get a decent start with at least the interior forms. (Sorry no pic) Then I found DigiFett's thread and another that said when no Sintra supplier is nearby, "NO TRESPASSING" and "GARAGE SALE" signs from Wal-Mart will do.
That added together, and throw in a little foamcore board from Target (and a new printer8)), I was finally ready to take my own step into the WOF scratchbuilt world.
So far, I have purchased:
4- 15"x19" Garage Sale signs (I've only used two so far)
2- 11"x11" No Trespassing signs
1- 20"x30" Elmer's Foam Board
1- roll of regular masking tape
Since digifett has done so much so far, I won't bother with many details. I will say Vielen Dank Mein Freund! (Thank you my friend!)
I cut out the patterns, put together the main body, and "cooked" it (210*F for 3 minutes) and this was my result.
I cut out the top and bottom form rings from the foam board...
...and used them to attach the cheeks.
Now, I'm in the process of adding the extra "masks" to the form.
That's mine so far. In the next few days, I'll be finishing the masks and starting work on some of the smaller pieces.
Major kudos to Alan and Digifett. Thanks, guys!:thumbup
