Cutlery Challenge


Introducing Professor Pilchard-Spooney.
He is made using 3 spoons, a pilchard tin, two allen keys, and his hat is a cream horn mould.
I put peel off stars on his body and hat coloured it with Peel off pens and alcohol inks and then removed the peel offs.
A Docrafts forum buddy Nicks had challenged us to Alter cutlery.
Originally this was intended to be a robotic Penguin, but then I found the old cream horn tin mould, which fitted snuggly on the head of my project, and everything changed, lol I just had to use it. I had lots of frustrations fixing it all together, in the end I used "Aroldite Rapid" an old favourite of mine, for awkard sticking jobs. Bit by bit and piece by piece, and very slowly, eventually Professor Pilchard- Spooney evolved.LOL. so named because of his Pilchard tin body and his Spoon head and feet.
I just hope that people will get half as much enjoyment seeing him as I have had, creating him.
If you care to leave a comment, it will be the cherry on the cake (Cream horn maybe? lol) for me.
