Step 2: Design

The first step to making a scrap metal sculpture is designing, I'm not good at drawing schematics and diagrams so here's my picture.

Step 3: The head

First i glued the head together using hot glue. i started with the eyes and then i glued that to the mouth.

Step 4: Body, Back and Legs

The next step was the body, back and legs. First i attached the back and front legs to the bolt (the body), I then added the 2nd and 3rd sets of legs to the bolt again using hotglue.

Step 5: Wings

The first step to gluing the wings was planning then i added 2 blobs of hot glue to where the back and front pin of the bobby pins was going to be and then quickly stuck them on (it takes about 30sec for hotglue to dry). I then did the same with the back wings and used some button thing to cover the ghastly hole I'd left.

Step 6: Attaching the head to the body

This steps pretty easy, you just add a big wad of hot glue to the back of the head and the front of the bolt then wait a few seconds for the glue to partiality dry so that its still wet but not runny (so that your not holding the head in place for 30sec). Then put the head on the body and hold it there until the glue dries

Step 7: FINISHED

here are a few pics of the finished product. I was quite proud of myself and I guarantee you will be to :p
