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
What you will need:
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)
Hot-melt adhesive for glue gun
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
