Introduction: IRON SQUIRREL (MARK I)

Picture of 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.

Materials:

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
Base:
  • 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.
