My cute little robot is hanging on my back pack.Many people sitting in front of me/ by my side in the train /bus are too curious to know what this robot is about.Earlier it was just a little teddy,and no one cared for it, now the robot attracts adults and specially the kids.They keep asking and I have to go on.... telling about this lovely site and the robot.Most people here hang some thing on their back pack/hand bags.As for me this robot has been my favorite and now is on my back pack forever.Scroll down to read how it is made.........

Paperclips add structure if the eartennae or other fiddly bits start to bend. That's adorable. Thanks for reppin' the robot on the train.

You are welcome!

That's cool.

Maybe add a layer of varnish to make it weatherproof?

xpat73 (author)Kiteman2014-06-20

Welcome!Thank you for the tip.At the moment I do not have varnish.I will try it with colorless nail polish and upload a picture.Will this be ok?

Kiteman (author)xpat732014-06-21

That might make some of the colours (especially the pen) run, so I'd test it on scraps first.

PVA glues, like craft glue and wood glue, can also be watered down and used as a varnish as well.

That's great! :) Maybe I'll make something similar, because I have feeling that not many people in Czech Rep. know about this site
