Model of the Month Sept 2012, (Elephant)
« on: September 05, 2012, 06:38:08 PM »
Here we go then with this months choice, either; Dog hat, Duck hat, Fish hat, none of these made it onto my hat DVD just hats. See what I did there  :D  plug plug.
Or an Elephant made from 1, 260, 1, 160 and a 5" round
or a Dolphin or princess/doll, probably too much to choose from.

Oooo I like the sound of the elephant. Have loads of rounds to use. Hats would be good too!

So many choices LOL, anything works for me - I don't think its the item in particular that I prefer - it's the learning a new technique or a better way to do something.

The first two pictures are of an Elephant I made for the Bishops Stortford day early 201. The third picture with no tusks was made this afternoon.

I then made a few variations, well a lot actually. The second picture looks like the character from Sponge Bob.

Then the Pink Elephant brigade, if anyone would like side and rear views to attempt I did take plenty of pictures of them all.

This is the first model of the month I've attempted before the instructions came out.  Although I'm sure the original used a round balloon, I decided to make it easier on myself and used a link-a-loon.
