Introduction: Monkey Island Feral Chicken Fridge Magnets
Monkey Island series is the best adventure game I had the opportunity to play. In the third part "Curse of the Monkey Island" Guybrush lands on an island named Plunder where he finds some Feral Chicken.
Some time back I had the opportunity to make fridge magnets that looked like those chicken. Now I'm about to make some more of them and I thought that I can make a tutorial showing how to make them by yourself.
Step 1: What You Will Need and Step 1
- Scroll saw (in my case Proxxon DSH)
- Hot glue gun
- Wood (in my case it was oak plywood)
- Grey undercoad paint (in my case it was Montana spray, color Mouse)
- Paints: (in my case it was Revell paints)
- White (Revell number 301)
- Red (Revell number 330)
- Black (Revell number 8)
- Glue stick
- Hot-melt adhesive for glue gun
- Masking tape
Print the pattern (download the pattern here) and cut the wood to the dimension of the pattern.
Step 2: Masking Tape
Take two pieces of wood, place one on another like a sandwich and wrap it around with the masking tape.
Step 3: Pattern
Spread stick glue on the upper side of the stack and place the pattern on it.
Step 4: Cutting and Sanding
Cut the pattern.
Peel off the masking tape and sand the burrs made in the process of cutting.
Step 5: Base Paint
Place the chicken on a piece of wood and paint them with grey undercoat.
Step 6: Sketch
Sketch the pattern with a pencil.
Step 7: Colors
Start with painting the eyes, then comb and the beak.
Step 8: Contours
Using a permanent marker with a large tip paint the contours. Next using a fine tip market correct the places that you were unable to get with the first marker and finish all of the lines inside the pattern.
Step 9: Magnet
Back side can be painted black but this is only an option. When the paint dries up lay the hot glue and place the magnet.
Step 10: Finished
