I'm so glad you like him! I do miss the little guy. I showed him off at my office before I mailed him and they haven't looked at me the same way since.  Grin

Stumpy is actually the younger brother of a much more unfortunate creature. This is the first try. As you can see, it didn't go so well.

I started with a cheapo little plastic baby. After the first try, I realized taking his legs off before adding the tail was the way to go. I used the spectacular apoxie clay, recommended by the even more spectacular Michael deMeng. A little hunk of punchinella (sequin waste) pressed into the clay gave the kind of scaly texture to his tale. Then it was all paint from there.

The tin I've had for quite awhile, with the curled back front. I had tried to rust it and that didn't go very well either. I went after it with paint, again leaning on the master deMeng for tips. I used Golden fluid acrylics in Micaeous Iron Oxide, Transparent Red Iron Oxide & Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide with a touch of Carbon Black and just kept smudging it on until I got to a color I liked. The rusty screen actually bought pre-rusted.

Thanks so much!  Is there nothing sequin waste can't do?!

Faa-aa-aantastic!  That is so creepy and gross!  I just love it.  Love.  I really like how he's bursting out of the tin, out of the screen and onto a crowd near you.  Okay - now tell how you made him, please!  This is exactly the kind of thing I need to add to my Halloween decorations - in a larger size, of course.  If you can believe it, one way I knew that The ManFlesh was a keeper was when he brought home for me a two-headed conjoined twin in a specimen jar that he found in someone's free pile on the sidewalk!  They need a friend like Stumpy!
2headed twins in a jar for FREE??!!  Yah, you definatly scored in the ManFlesh dept. Nice catch Grin

I know!  And he carried it all around on his dog walk in the hot summer sun.  Sigh.  He's dreamy.

How could you possibly take the time to post here before you opened it??  Good lord! - when I get a package I'm gnawing at the packing tape before I've even gotten back in the front door!!  Hurry!  Hurry!!!

Methinks, Wulf here has a bit of a cruel streak... teasing us this way, acting all in control and such.

Ah ha!  Yes I have seen this stuff and just had no idea what it was for.   I do think people make bows for wreaths out of it and as ribbon/bows on gifts.  It's at that place on "TheMistressT's Spectrum of Aw-" where Awful and Awesome intersect, so bad it's good and so good it's bad, depending on how it's used.

OMG, Mistress T you are missing out on a dotty experience!  Sequin waste is what is left over after the sequins are punched out, paper peoples usually use it for a layer of dots on stuff (its like a stencil really)  If you feel the need for some I have miles of it...

I LOVE IT!  Is this something that's just for sale right out there with other crafting supplies?  How could I have not known?  I mean I'm not a paper crafter per se, but my newest motto is "If you wear enough sequins all you have to do is stand there"!  Sheesh.  I also just love that people are using the waste... sequins and environmentally sound practices!

What on earth is "sequin waste" and why have I not heard of it?!

Modern Masters makes lots of oxidized/patina-ed metals paints and solutions.  Copper, iron, bronze, brass, etc.  Perhaps more expensive than others, but they're high quality and rated for exterior use if that's something you are interested in.  They even have stuff that will continue aging which is fun.

I think I the Goatman was in my homeroom sophomore year of high school.  Hmmm.  Love this stage and especially the little detail on the sides of the outside of the tin.  Are those red and rust stripes?

Is this our last?  [sniff]
