You may think making a found art sculpture would be easy, but there is a lot of thinking and trial and error put in to it. It is not just glueing a bunch of random parts together, they have to fit in ways of appearance, yet be weird and different at the same time. I hope you like my first instructable.

The first step is to gather materials, now this is one of the easiest parts. I went through boxes of junk, clocks, and scavenged in my garage for different items.
These are the most important parts of making a found art sculpture. A base, a wooden stand that will be put on the base and hot glue the others are optional.
Now you need to glue the stand onto your base, TIP: I suggest using plastics and woods for the base and stand because metal doesn't like hot glue very much(aka it won't stick)
Start glueing on the basics of the frame for the sculpture, i used an old flashlight spring. From this you will start to add material glue can stick to, I used a piece of felt and it worked great.
I added a piece of felt and stuck on some random parts, remember that some of the parts put on first might not be seen later on.
Step 6: Finished Product
Make sure any wobbly parts are glued down and there are no huge glue spots. I use a silver leaf pen to put on the glue spots so it looks like solider. I hope you like my first instructable. Tell me what you think!
