Thank you!  He was a lot of fun and a great challenge to try to capture his signature crooked smile.   Smiley  This sculpture is very simplified because it will be shrunk down to tiny size.

How on earth do you shrink 6 inches down to tiny size? Do you make it in some kind of heat shrink plastic?

My husband will scan it into the computer and make a file which he'll send to a 3D printing service where it's printed at the small size. More in this thread:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426612.0#axzz3BsKlbvLH     Smiley

Thanks for the info. That is really interesting. I had no idea it was so easy to make small sculptures from large nowadays.

The digitizing process is quite time-consuming, so not "so easy"  Wink

  Cheesy I should have said "achievable", not "easy".
Your link gives a good idea of the effort involved.  I hope Mervyn  works out in the end. He deserves to.
