Jigsaw (& several blades)
Paint Markers: 2 Black & 1 White medium point, 1 Black Fine Point)
Base-coat waterproofing primer
Flat gloss polyurethane
Acrylic paints: Various colors
Two 1"x2" studs
1/2" PVC Pipe
Draw and cut out your figures with the jigsaw and sand them well. Add at least 2 coats of the base coat. It seals and waterproofs the wood and it also gives you a more forgiving drawing surface. If you mess up you can use an eraser. If you really mess up you simply sand away the mistake and reapply primer.
Step 1: Sally
I made Sally first for a couple of reasons. First, she is out front and has more way more detail so I wanted to make sure she came out looking good before I moved on. Second, she determined the position of Jack's shoulder and I needed her for proportion for the other parts.
Step 2: Jack
I used a white paint marker for his pinstripes. Don't try for perfection with his stripes- the more wonky the lines, the more authentic the look.
Step 3: Zero
Step 4: Project Complete. for Now...
So, after a successful project I look around and realize that I haven't made Oogey or The Mayor or Lock, Shock & Barrel...
It's about to get busy!
