ok, so I got a brain wave last night and would like to make my husband a chess set for christmas. here's the ideas:
- a set that sort of represents us, and things from our life, with me as the queen and him as king, our dog as pawns, etc...
- mini cars, if I do this one I would like to have some sort of mold?
- south park vs. family guy (two of his favorite shows)
does anyone have an idea of what sort of clay/paint would be best? I'd like to be able to use a standard chess board, but if I need to make one a little bigger I'm willing. or anymore ideas? he doesn't really watch sports, but he plays the guitar and video games (his ideal gift would be an xbox 360, but it isn't exactly in our price range
) and he loves airplanes, he's a hydraulic mechanic for the Air Force and wants to be a pilot someday.
I'd like to find a set to go by as a guide maybe? I'm willing to put a lot of work into this, I know he'll love it. anything you can add would be helpful!
