Another robot model I completed last year. I was going for more of a Star Wars aesthetic with this one, sort of inspired by Gonk droids.
Except for the eye, he’s made entirely out of Super Sculpey. I created a cardboard mold for the shape that forms the two body halves so that they would be the same. After the body halves were baked, I used a Dremel to hollow them out and carve the hole for the eye.
The eye was made with a bottle cap lid, the lens is a clear glass cabochon. I bought a pack of them in various sizes. I’m hoping to find more uses for them.
If I were to build a similar one, I wouldn’t use Sculpey for the arms as they seem a little brittle. I’m sure they would break if he were to fall over. Luckily he’s pretty stout.
