Introduction: IRON SQUIRREL (MARK I)

Need some ideas of how to use your bathroom plastic garbage?

This is Iron Squirrel Mark II (2008), one of my first sculptures using a base of plastic bottles and caps. You assembly these and the apply epoxic and paint for a best finish.


For the limbs:
  • Deodorant plastic caps
  • Pills bottles
  • Roll-on deodorant balls
  • Nails: dinosaur kit plastic bones
For the body:
  • WC automatic fragance spray
For the tail:
  • Shaving razors plastic box
For the head:
  • Toy ball
  • Roll-on deodorant balls
  • VHS cassette plastic case
I used copper wire for join the limbs to the body, epoxic, paint, LEDs and batteries. And nuts and bolts.

Tools: Dremel, screwdrivers, pliers and solderin iron.

Hey, how about making a version of the Robot for us? Would love to see what you could do with him.

Love the idea! Let me finish something I have in this moment, and I will work about it. :-)
