that is awsome my friend
is that bobo the bear
yes he was one of the fan fav characters that palisades never got to well him and sal
o lol nice what suit is he wearing?
i think he's wearing his new suit from the film that or the one he was wearing in muppets from space
I haven´t found many pictures of BOBO but i think my pic is from "Muppets from space".
well in the new movie his suit isnt gold
That's probably the best fan-made Bobo I've seen. I've always been afraid to even try one. How does his height compare to Fozzie?
do u have plans to make a tux walter or maybe a brown toga walter i guess people are saying he wears in the movie
@ muppetlover123 the suit is grew colored, the light makes it shining gold! i don´t want to make a second Walter because it doesn´t makes fun to me, to create a figure a second time.
@Dearth The next days I will make a Fozzie&Bobo pic for you!
o really sorry i didnt see i thought it was gold and ur not gonna make a tux of him for your other tux charcters
what do u use to make them
Most likely sculpty. And I love the suited Bobo, but a naked one would probably be a challange.
i meant materials like clay and or what kind of clay
The brand name is actually spelled Sculpey, with an E.
I don't know for sure what Christian uses, but I prefer the third version, called Super Sculpey, for my own sculpting projects. Regular Sculpey is white and the texture is sort of creamy. Super Sculpey is pink and feels more like plasticine modeling clay.
The directions usually say to bake it, but I prefer boiling it to 'cure' it... that is, to harden it and make it permanent. I especially prefer boiling white 'Sculpey' (version 1) to baking it, because it stinks up your entire kitchen with a smell like burnt salmon. When boiled, there is no odor.
Once cured, Super Sculpey can be sanded, painted, etc.
One of the cool things about it is that there is no shrinkage when it hardens, so if you're making a piece that is supposed to attach to an existing figure, it should fit back on perfectly after it is cured.
WOW the fozzie backdrop looks awesome!
and Christian, your Bobo looks great.
How does ol Bobo compare to Beauregard? Beau is HUGE, and Bobo's supposed to be abit bigger than him.
