The eyes are styrofoam balls, covered with a thin white fabric to make them look smoother.
Thanks for the great info!
I know it's been a while, but just out of curiosity, how was the nose made? sculpted foam and fleece covering? stuffed fleece?
The nose is a styrofoam egg, covered in orange fleece stretched and glued over it, with a few cuts in it to get rid of wrinkles and make it lay flat. Pretty much the exact same concept as the eyes.
What is the circumfrence of the tubes?
Awesome! It looks great!
So cool! Are you going to field test him anywhere? You should sit in the back seat of a car and roll down the window at a drivethru, and order with beaker! X)
Wow! People are still interested in Beaker, huh? That's cool. I'm glad you all like him so much!
TML: The tubes are oatmeal cans that are about 4 inches in diameter and just about 13 inches around.
Walter: I don't perform much with my replicas, but Beaker has been out and about at school some. College students always seem to love Beaker!
Brilliant. Very well done.
I used your oatmeal can idea. Thank you. Here is my rendition of Beaker. The hardest part was sewing the lab coat. LOL
Nicely done! Looks like you made yours pretty much the same way I did mine, judging by the "skull" picture. He looks really fantastic!
Thanks. I used Christmas ornaments for eyes. Now to get em to light up!
These are great replicas can I ask if you used quaker oats cans?? they are the cardboard ones? I have to make one of these, any help would be great also where did you get the shirt? just store bought?
Yep, the head is made with two Quaker Oat cardboard tubes. The bottom of his mouth is wear the tubes connect. The shirt is actually just some white fabric I had with a checked pattern drawn on with a fabric marker, as that's what was available. It's not an actual shirt. Just fabric wrapped around the tube and a collar and tie attached. TML's photos posted above show how he did his, and it's almost just like mine in that respect.
Hello TML is there anyway I could email you about some of the stuff you do if you want to email me im firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
Yes you can email me at email@example.com.
added a couple pics of works in progress and my finished chicken!
Todd the chicken looks awesome "nice legs" cany wait to see flyod!
Hey TML, Did you ever go any further on your Miss Piggy head sculpture? Made a puppet of her? I love you work, great stuff!
Been working this summer on refining the sculpture with a friend and figuring out how to cast it and use cold foam. Anyone have any suggestions?
did you sew the fleece and mouth fabric together first, and then stretch it all over the cardboard tube? or did you use another method to putting on the fleece skin and red mouth fabric?
