It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezes are cool.

So I recently did a doctor who swap and I really loved varifiresis's weeping angel statue and wanted to try something similiar. My partner didn't like the weeping angels so i decided to try my hand at the clockwork robots.

Here's a reference pic:


Its hard to see in this pic but the face has a cracked/crackle type look. I ended up using a barbie and some air dry clay for the face. I tried to do the crackle affect using the old elmers glue and paint trick (which works amazing if you've never done it) however I didn't water down the glue and paint enough so the cracks came out bigger than I hoped. I painted the face detail on and then I painted on the gloves and shoes and around the neck and then made the the dress (my first time making clothes so tiny!). I attempted curling the hair but I couldn't get it to stay (i read online using steam worked, like over a boiling pot of water but it wouldn't stay).

Anyways, here's some pics -

I love to see fancraft for Dr Who.  Those clockwork henchmen are spooky!  Nicely done!

I LOVE this!

I did a Weeping Angel for my Christmas tree topper and now I'm inspired to do one of these too!

That's super cool and evil looking. Very nice replica.

Thanks everyone! It took forever and a day to make - I don't think I've ever made something that took this long before. lol

I felt the same way about my angel- it took WEEKS! I love this idea though, I swore that I was done re-doing Barbies after that project but I saw this post and I love it so much, I see a Barbie doll in my future.  Great job!
