I learnt many years ago that with my plants bubble wrap is not the way to go. However, I have turned off the water supply that runs through one of the greenhouses to an outside tap. That burst in two places last year when the "Return of the Beast from the East" struck.

I have this little fellow to mould this week. He is as I like to call him Montezuma, on his golden throne, oddly looking like a privy! I thought to make castings and use them as grotesques on a buildings.

:mrgreen: Perhaps he should be reading the newspaper ? :coffee: Or indeed the BEANO ? BB

Made by the soapy water method. So it is ready for casting up. :-D BB

While I await a more opportune time to continue painting figures,
i will try my hands at some things I can do as no real skill is required.
Or indeed steady hands. The wonder of this condition is way beyond my control.
I can always spend money, but doing a little active stuff in my hobby is all important too.

I bought some toy parts on E Bay so a little light fingered work from me.

Slight trimming off of plastic is and was required so that it lays flat.

The moulding box is prepared.
The Pattern held firmly in place with blu tac, as are the Lego Bricks too.

I am awaiting rubber supplies to arrive in a couple of days so I`ll get back on topic when I can.

For those who do not know my work or the reasons behind it, I create scenes for use in the story`s I write,so I make do with what I can find and use them to make props to aid my well thought out endeavours of eccentricities. :-D

The Lion Head part from LEGO, will be a feature to adorn ancient walls and divert water away as gargoyles in the form of grotesques do. :-D BB
