sunflowers so much, as you can see!
These are Brandon's Sunflora, keep an eye out for them on your blog [link]
Together they have a grand total of 30 cents (in 5¢ pieces) inserted into them for stability.
The reason why there are so many of them is because of this:
The one on the right was the prototype, and had major falling backwards issues. The only way to make it stand independently was to glue a penny into the end of each arm and glue one on the inside of it's bottom - 15¢.
The second one on the left was the final version, but I accidentally glued the two bottom sections of it's neck on back to front, which gives it a sky-gazer posture. This one also has a penny glued to the inside of it's groin, just in case - 5¢.
Then the second one on the right has an alternate face texture. It's pose is finally correct, but I chose to glue the arms on upside down at the last minute. I accidentally glued a penny in the wrong spot (it's bottom) and had to use a counter balance penny on it's tummy, which you can just see the imprint of ... darn - 10¢.
And the one on the left is the final edit, finally built correctly!
I think that they look like they are having a wonderful conversation, don't you? Something like:
"No seriously - it was THIS big!" *group laughter*
