1  Bathrobe for a lizard in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by audioscience on: April 10, 2010 01:17:09 PM

I'm not normally one to dress up animals (except for when the winter winds blow and the dog needs a coat!), but in this case I think putting a bathrobe on my mountain horned dragon for about 20 minutes after bath-time is justified. Tammy (the lizard) is going through her shedding phase and soaking in warm water helps to loosen the dead scales, but keeping in the warmth and humidity by wearing a bathrobe really speeds up the process so she can get back to being her lizardy self sooner! Her robe (more like a vest) is made from fleece and has snaps to hold it shut. Here she is modeling her new after-bath look:

2  Mushrooms! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by audioscience on: July 01, 2009 05:32:53 AM


Mushrooms made from sculpy translucent clay, then painted with really cheap arcylic paint. The mossy piece is actually a stash pot, and the morels are hollow just like real morels.

3  Patrick in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by audioscience on: June 07, 2007 04:10:22 AM
This is Patrick! He's about 17 inches tall, totally posable, and made of wire, polyfill, nylon, and translucent sculpy III. To start, I made an armature which resembled a wire skeleton and then wrapped it in polyfill and needle-felted it into place. Then I wrapped the body in nylon, sculpted the arms/hands, legs/feet, and head and attached them, painted them, and then dressed him. I did the jeans with felt, and the shirt with t-shirt fabric, and that's that! Oh, he has suspenders which are just strips of stretchy chord. Enjoy!

5  Tiny octopus in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by audioscience on: June 02, 2007 07:00:21 AM
I think my fantasy pet would be a tiny tiny critter that could sit on my shoulder and chill out with me- but this idea morphed into a tiny critter that I could wear as an adornment, so an octopus was the first thing that came to mind. What better way to wear an octopus other than as a ring?
He's made of wire and felt, and is completely posable. Although the picture is bad, he does have little suction cups painted on the bottoms of the tentacles, and he has one tentacle that loops around (creating the ring part).

6  Lots of Puppets! Img Heavy. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by audioscience on: May 10, 2007 02:14:00 PM
Hello all!
I've been making puppets for a show I'm putting together, so I figured I'd post them! They're all done with foam and fuzy stretch-felt (which is apparently called "Antron Fleece").
This is Tiki Akua (the Shaman)




This is Root, previous posted under "Hand Puppet"

This is Ziggy, he's a glorified finger puppet- so your index finger goes into his face, and then a very small rod that connects on his bottom jaw controls his mouth when he talks. He's about 7" long.




This is Large Monty, he's just under 4 feet long, and operates with one hand in his head, and the other in his tail.

7  Activity Board for special needs in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by audioscience on: April 04, 2007 10:45:48 AM
Hey there!
I have an autistic cousin who has a birthday coming up, and his mom wanted to get him an activity/sensory board. After looking them up we found that they are VERY expensive, and I thought they looked pretty boring- what's the solution? Make your own!
So I bought a bunch of sensory things and mounted them on a piece of board. There's a column of "touch" being the big colourful rubber balls, the fake fur, a silicone ball (that lights up), some scrub brushes, and this really neat stress ball I found. The next is a "See" column, so there's fiberoptic lights, glow in the dark stickers, and some mirrors, and then there's a learning column that has shapes. The entire thing was fairly cheap to make, about $40 Canadian dollars total which is great compared to the $850- to $1,200 sites were charging. Now I just hope he likes it!

8  Mystic (urRu) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by audioscience on: March 26, 2007 02:36:43 PM
This little guy has taken so long to finish! I started him many many months ago and just never got around to finishing it- but today it was nice outside so I sat and created!
This is a Mystic (or urRu) from The Dark Crystal. He's made of sculpy, felt, some fake hair, wire, and painted with acrylic. He's totally posable, and about six inches from head to tail, 4 inches tall.
Enjoy!

9  Meditating Gnome in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by audioscience on: March 18, 2007 04:12:10 PM
I found this little monk meditating in my orchids- so I figured I'd take his picture and introduce him to Craftster. He told me he's made of sculpy, and some scrap bits of scarf. Enjoy!

10  The Little Prince in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by audioscience on: March 05, 2007 12:19:50 PM
I'm not sure how well-known the story "The Little Prince" is, but I love the book and the character so I figured I'd make one! I'm sorry about the bad picture quality, he's very small (about 2 inches when standing on the planet) so it's hard to take a clear picture. He's made from polymer clay, and painted with acrylic, and that's it! Enjoy!
