My dad had given me an old laptop (which had no virtual use
Step 1: Setup and Materials
-First thing's first; I drew something to base the idea on. (I've been a big fan of Zoids since I was younger, so I decided to make a tribute to the "Genosaur")
-Second, figure out what tools would help me accomplish my goal. All I was gonna do was make a simple non-moving figurine.
Materials: -A glue gun.
-The keyboard keys as building material.
-The actual keyboard could easily be used as a base for the sculpture.
-Anything else from our keyboard that has a cool shape you can work with.
-A plastic bag is nice to do it on so the glue won't stick to the working area.
Step 2: Hints and Tricks
-Divide the body of the product into different parts so the gluing at the end would be the simplest.
-Use different key sizes and keys, and even the other parts to your advantage.
(Mine brought these round little button-like things... which I capped together to make a tail.
-Keys can provide a signature or even decoration to the object. (I made the bottom spell my name)*
-As previously suggested, the very green base of the keyboard as a stand.
-Take ideas from what the object was based on... for example, on "Zoids", the creatures had like reinforcements at the joints... You'll see how I pulled it off in the following pictures.
-Also, don't be afraid to try new things and mess up- Glue from the glue guns are easy to take off.
-Rub the glue-gun tip on the glue to sculpt and smoothen.
Step 3: The End Product...
As you progress take pictures to see how your idea takes form.
Good luck: feel free to post any of your outcomes.
