Today’s Work – Mario Mushroom

May 2, 2007

I’ve been doing some clay modeling with Fimo, baking and gluing tests today.

Pics 1 & 2 – Mixing the the body colour out of white, orange and some yellow mixed.
Pic 3 & 4 – Assembly. Found it very difficult to keep the colours separate.
Pic 5 – Cap and stalk joined.
Pic 6 – Final assembly. Eyes fiddly due to tiny size. Added white dots. Final mushroom was baked in the oven for 25 mins at 130 degrees celsius. I was able to sand the mushroom to remove some unwanted colour with an emery board. Sealed the final mushroom with acrylic painting matt varnish.
