I’ve finished the Swede’s head - what do you all think?
I think it looks really good!
WOW!! Fantastic. Me want!!
Woah! Really good job buddy!! He is spot on
It's amazing! And the Kermit is great too. Can't wait to see the finished product.
omg - I think he looks amazing!
A character that is rarely made as well.
Thanks for the compliments, all. I think that - as Blue Frackle says - because he's not replicated all that often (and doesn't get as much screen time as some of the others), it's probably a bit easier to make a Swedish Chef that looks "around about right". If I look closely, the lower lip size is smaller than the current Chef (though about right for some earlier ones), the skin, nose and hair colours aren't exact, and overall the whole thing is maybe 5-10% too large.
Still, overall I'm pretty happy with him. Next step will be to find someone with larger hands than me to convince them to stick their hands in some alginate so I can take a cast.
that's a good idea. All I need now is to locate some in Australia to reduce the op scene shipping costs!
That would be a hard call. Most maniquin hands that I see are either plain, heavy resin, or jointed wood. The ones in the listing are hollow PVC as well
as looking realistic, with veins. Shipping seems to have gone up dramatically from The States. Good luck.
It's amazing, but will you be making that neck part external?
I'm not sure what you mean - what "neck part"?
The neck is the cylinder that you put your hand up. Does that ring a bell?
I think "external" got me. I think gavry3 is asking will we see all the neck or will it be sunk down into the body?

Ah-ha - got ya! It will be mostly hidden - like this:
