Beautiful job. Just like the real deal.
A few more photos
Amazing! It makes me want to start my Kermit!
You're really lucky to have the DVD already.
The "Pig" was spot on. How does it feel to have your hand in that position inside the head to make the mouth like that. Does it hurt after a while?
I must have missed this when it was first posted. I know what you mean about never being happy to leave the things that niggle you.
He is perfect though,without a doubt the best one.
All i will say is never make Animal - I didn't intend making the second one but in the end the first one was just too far off the mark for me to live with. Now the only problem is nearly every week i have to restrain myself from picking up the ostrich feathers again.
Initially it feels awkward. Its not a natural position to hold. The key is to ralax the hand as much as possible. Muscle memory will kick in eventually
Funnily enough, Animal has been on my list of things to do for a while and i have a bag full of feather fringe for him!
Im trying to take a back seat from doing replicas at the moment and concentrating on custom builds... No doubt i will try another one between jobs t some point
He looks great! How you have choose the right color? What did you use for his eyes domes?
I though his pupils were made of black felt.
Thanks.. He is made of regular anti pill fleece. It was a case of getting many samples and seeing which one was the best colour.
His eyes are 35mm domes with black electrical tape for pupils
Thanks! It looks wonderful! I though Kemit's puplis were made of a thin black felt. Thinner than other characters' pupils.
They probably are.. I used what worked for me and what i had to hand
It works, looks great. This Kermit seems as he has the right shape. Near to the current one.
What an amazon job! What did you use for the mouth plate? I've looked everywhere in the UK for some gasket rubber and so far no luck!
Thanks.. the mouthplate in this one i think was a rubber placemat
