Flower Pot Men
« on: July 06, 2018, 11:22:27 AM »
I'm not sure how many will know these characters especially if you are not UK based.
I was trying to come up with a design that has not been made before.
Maybe this has and I have not seen.

I posted this picture onto my facebook page and asked any idea what I have been
making and it got a lot of comments and some interesting suggetions.

I was a little too sunny for pictures in my usual spot.

So we moved out into the hallway.
Adding hair and the vegetable to the hat, not sure if its an onion or leek possibly?

I must get a bigger back drop for some of the larger designs we make.

I then shined up the balloon as it was a very hot day and the shine
on the balloons had left the building.

As these pictures are the next day I had to remake the legs as the originals
were just not strong enough.

The hat made the design a little awkward for getting pictures
so we had to add a balloon at the back to balance.
A clear 160 from the body to hat, you can just see I think.

Then some outdoor shots.

And that was the story of making Bill & Ben the flower pot men,
there is weed as well and yes I think I will make again the full scene.


So is the design with the green neck section Bill or Ben?
off to google to see if I can find out.
