Ya I saw that "how to" on the DVD and wanted to try it myself...looks like great fun...and yours turned out really well. The colors are spot on. Can you share the details about the kind of clays you used? ;) How tall is he?

:cheers,

Thanks ob1al, Boba Frett, Cyberman,Darth Detroit, Penwiper, Wampa
Yes it is TMP

Sithlord, thanks, the figure is roughly 105-110mm high, i dont have the figure now to measure as i gave it to one of my nephews at the weekend. i built the wire armature just as per the dvd & propotioned the figure as best i could.
i used "Claydium" a fibrereinforced air drying clay that can be oven baked on a wire armature. fired him 30mins at 110C
the paints are by Games workshop, im sure it was citadel grey for the body, white for the tail & eyes, a dark blue for the eyes & i just mixed up a pink for the nose and ears.

Really nice sculpt there, Nathan. It looks dead-on to the movie. I bought the movie shortly after we adopted two rabbits of our own. That reminds me, I have to watch that again sometime soon...

Thanks for posting the mini-tutorial. I was thinking about doing something like that too, just got lost in the day-to-day tasks. You've inspired me to add it to my list of things to do.

:lol Thats a coincidence, as i just molded a toy of that same rabbit in silicone so i could make more of them for my Son who has a few of the new Wallace and Gromit figures.
