Hi, seems like every geek is making a baby Groot, this is my version.
My english is bad, sorry.
Not really a tutorial about how I made it.

I used 2 parts epoxy putty, plastic mini leaves, pieces of wire, bitumen and mineral solvent, moss, mini vase, super glue.

- For the base, I made a skinny and long cone, let it dry slightly and give it a little twist. Put a piece of wire to hold the little head. I made some marks on the trunk.

- I made the little arms and put wire to fix the little arms. Use super glue to secure in the position I wanted and started doing the vines with twisted rolls of dough. Put a little piece of wire to make the neck.

- I did the face, with some shallow marks, cut the lips and pressed a pen to make the eyes. Then I made mini twisted cones and started to add through the head toward the edges. I mounted the head using the piece of wire and super glue.

- Once dry, I painted the piece with wax bitumen diluted with mineral spirits and put sprigs of plastic glued here and there. Now, just put in a mini vase, giving the finish with dry moss.

I hope you are capable of understand my english, please excuse the errors.

I love your Groot!

You don't make it with your hands.
You form it with your hands.
You make it with your mind.
