The base is made with clay and painted with glaze. The glass was from an actual wine glass that I broke the stem off of. This won a gold medal in the Scholastic Arts and Writing awards last year and was used for the invitation for this years Scholastic Art Award Exhibition
As a Tim Burton fan I knew I should make some more mugs! This one is a Freak Ghost in purples, white and black! The Inside has not been converted so the mug can have hot or cold beverages inside. I recommend not washing this mug in the dishwasher. Wash the inside like any mug by hand but use a wet paper towel or soft cloth to carefully clean the outside. This mug is a work of art so use with caution and enjoy!
Munny Style Whamblamoo Alien Figure ooak HEAD TURNS!
Size: 5 1/2" High 3 1/2" Wide
I found these vinyl figures at a local store. Being they are in the Munny, Dunny and Kid Robot style I wanted to make various different creations! I have always loved aliens so I went ahead and converted this triangle head figure into a Whamblamoo! These are small aliens that love to watch...everything.
Made of soda cans, cut up and assembled, then lightly sprayed over the body portion withe metallic gold. The eye is the color side of a red can with the silver pupil. Unfortunately the hot glue used to assemble it didn't grab the metal very well. I'm sorry about the poor quality of the picture, I tried cleaning it up a bit in photoshop but there was only so much I could do. When I made this (Around Christmas, 2004) I had just gotten our first camera and I had absolutely no experience taking photos.
I am trying to find a more permanent way to join these without solder, I think cans may be too thin to solder, and I don't have one.
