Calvin and Hobbes - two of my favourite characters.

-the log is hollow - you can look right through to the other side.
-the base is plexi-glass, painted blue for the 'creek'.
-I don't think I used any ink in this one; The characters are 100% pipe cleaners.

-Calvin is approximately 3 inches tall, Hobbes 6 inches. Overall length is 10 inches.

I made one but shooting it and posting it was so painfully slow so I'll try one per day lol.

I can't wrap my mind around this... It's so good.

Ha, I have trouble with it, too, which is why it takes me so long to make.
Thanks for the Fave.

however you do kind of cheat. I don't use any other materials or paint. i keep it kind of abstract.

I don't proceed past the head of a character until I capture the proper look.

I noticed the pipe cleaners aren't the super fuzzy ones. where do you purchase them?

Wherever I can! I use 3mm, 4mm and 6mm. I had plans for the really fuzzy ones, but I got sidetracked by so many other great ideas.
I am still looking for a decent Supplier who will allow me to order the colours I want, in whatever quantity I want and not just the multi-packs - it is quite annoying to have to purchase a large quantity of small bits to build up my stock...Michaels, are you listening? :shakefist: (they will not order specific colours for me...grrr)

Thanks for Watchin'

Yike! Don't go to Michael's. They are super exepensive. I am surprised you don't purchase the pipe cleaners online. All you have to do is google, "wholesale chenille stems" and a whole world of colors come up. However, I can't find that fleshy color that you used on Calvin anywhere.

Did you not read my comment? Michaels sucks...:shakefist: I go in there for a couple basic colours, and only if I am in a pinch.
If I locate the 'flesh' colour anywhere(it's now called Peach), I will let you know. I have not seen it since I bought the last batch from Craft Canada before they went belly up a few years ago...
