Please check out my other models, including the Groot bust; and Baby Groot.
Step 1: Main Sculpt
I started off by bending the wire coat hanger into a rough armature. This makes the model about 10 inch tall.
This was then wrapped in tin foil to build up and flesh out the body.
Once that was done I covered it in tissue paper and paste. I then started building up the texture on the legs arms and body.
Step 2: Head and Face
Step 3: Bomb Box
I AM GROOT
A key element to this model is the bomb that Groot is running away with. I made a basic box out of card stock. This formed the rough base. Two burnt out LEDs were used for the buttons. Some card stock was used for top box.
The levers were small screws. Masking tape was used to mimic the tape holding the device together. Thin wires were used as, well ... wires. This was not an exact copy of the device as the available images are limited, but it's close. Maybe a later version will be more accurate.
Step 4: Resin and Paint
The device was painted dark grey/green. The wires were red and blue (all bombs have red and blue wires). The duct tape was painted silver as was the levers.
Step 5: Final Thoughts....
This was a fun project. Hopefully I will make more of these and refine the sculpt. If this happens I intend to make a silicone mound and make resin casts... but that a future thought. For now enjoy.....
