Picture of
Ever since I bought my first bag of sugru (check out this link if you don't know what it is), I've used it for a lot of stuff (fixed my bike, improved a pen, made a custom handle to carry bottle crates or made my shoes more comfortable ...), but for this Instructable I wanted to make something bigger.

In order to exchange room air fast and efficient, I like to open my windows entirely. The problem is, that if I forget to close a door, it slams shut.
Door stoppers are pretty handy, but either boring or expensive. So why not make one?

For those of you that don't know who Kenny is, check out the wikipedia article:

If you don't like South Park how about Mario?

My brother saw the door stopper and asked me to make one for himself with his head. Hopefully I can talk him out of it, else I will for sure post the result.

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
  • orange and black sugru, there are three options (EDIT: when I wrote this Instructable, sugru didn't exist in the colour red... Now you can buy it in their shop. I will leave this part, because it shows you how to get colours, that are not available. Apparently their is no more orange sugru. You can get it by mixing red and yellow)
    • use sugru only for the legs and boots, you will need one pack each and orange and red paint.
    • cover the whole body with sugru, you will need about three (5g) bags of orange sugru (you may need more, depending on how sparingly you apply it), one pack of black sugru and red paint for the blood.
    • cover the whole body and make red sugru for the blood, you will need 4 bags of orange sugru, one pack of black sugru and red silicone pigment or colour as well as disposable gloves.
  • flesh, white, brown and black paint, paint brush
  • rubber floor mat, the thinner the better
  • wooden door stopper (or just a piece of wood, check step 3)
  • wooden ball Ø about 8cm - 9cm (if you can't find one check out the next step)
  • Apoxie Sculpt or any type of modelling clay
  • sand paper
  • strong glue
  • a saw, files (If you decide to work with wood)
  • modelling tools (not really necessary but will make modelling easier)
  • box cutter

what do you mean by an eight centimeter hole is that the diameter? how did you make the eyes are they apoxie or modeling clay?
BrittLiv (author)  swiggy72 years ago
Hi, yes that's the diameter. I used Apoxie Sculpt to make the eyes.

Hi there! totally AWESOME instructable - I'm in the process of purchasing the required elements to create a You killed Kenny Doorstop - but: would the silicone pigment be fine for tin or platinum cure rubbers? 0o i do not know much about Sugru, using it is still pretty new to me...

I've found the following silicone pigment samplers for purchase on the web... http://www.smooth-on.com/Silc-Pig%3D-Silico/c1190/index.html (but specifically http://www.smooth-on.com/images/silcpigpalletteforweb.jpg ).

i'm also considering buying some silk cord (something like http://www.gjropes.com/static/images/main/P3180016.jpg , but from a local retailer) and using the other color pigmentation on Sugru for when I make the doorstop, as I'd rather not use paint. :P

My question is: Would one of the above pigments be enough to stain the Sugru red? "You don't need much color" is not exactly too specific I'm afraid...

I am also considering using a rubber ball (8cm diameter) for Kenny's head, as well as getting hold of a block of foam rubber to mold the body and arms out of using a hot-wire cutter (the likelihood of someone stepping on the doorstop by accident is incredibly high where I'll be using it - this way it would be less likely to break - and make Kenny's clothes out of Sugru covered material!)... XD

You definitely got my vote for this one! :D
BrittLiv (author)  pdu toit3 years ago
Hi, I'm glad, that you like the instructable. Considering the pigments, I'm sorry I don't know which one would work best.
I tried using different types of paint to colour sugru here:

Making an all rubber version sounds amazing and I would love to see the result.

Considering the amount of silicone pigments I used, it was about twice as much, of what you can see in the first picture of step 5.

It's awesome !! It would be a nice idea to make some kind of a cup holder, I mean as if the cup were smashing kenny.

Or a pen holder !! with the pen stabbing his back.

That would be cool and a nice instructable ;) (if someone does this, please let me know =) )
there already maked a a cup holder wich look a like u smashed a man not kenny but still
and same with the pen holder; made
BrittLiv (author)  mauro12mdp4 years ago

I voted for you! Shame you where on the last page of things to vote for because it puts you at a disadvantage. By the way where did you get your red sugru from the official website is way to expensive and theres no red!
BrittLiv (author)  JonnyDude20084 years ago
Thanks a lot for the vote, I couldn't wait any longer to publish it, because I was so exited. You can sort by views though.
I dyed orange sugru red with silicone pigment.
Cool never mind about the sugru though because I found an instructable on how to create your own using silicon wood glue and corn flour alongside with any colour dye you wish
Hi, sorry if you answered already, but what kind of paint did you use to color the sugru?

BrittLiv (author)  technosapien4 years ago
Hi, I've used red silicone pigment. If you don't have any you can also use oil paint.

I meant, why is it orange?
BrittLiv (author)  Screamo4 years ago
It's red (have a look at the second and third picture of the intro), the camera flash makes it appear more orange than it actually is.

BrittLiv (author)  struckbyanarrow4 years ago
Thanks a lot, South Park really polarises, I can totally understand it, if people don't like it. Makes me even happier, that you liked the door stopper!

This sugru stuff is really interesting. I'm thinking "munny speakers" could be a lot more affordable now.

Sweeeet instructable.
BrittLiv (author)  sway4 years ago
Thanks, yes it is really nice, hopefully this contest produces even more good ideas, because the possibilities are endless.
