    Reminds me of the stop-motion video I did in High School with play-do. I wish I would saved that in some electronic form, as the tape was used for recording other things.

    a little more detail would be cool... i mean "make the man"? how? and are there options to this sort of thing ... can i get creative or should i stick to your design for best results? -ok just half way bustin a nice touch would be to squish the face on the good old comics section of the local paper... add some flash - ya know

    YES!!! This is exactly what instructables needs... You see, most of the projects on here are too involved for most people... I mean, really. How many people would have the patience to build a wind turbine or an aquarium cofee table (as great as those sound)? This kind of project is a great departure... What person with some silly putty wouldn't want to check out this GREAT step by step instructional project on how to build a silly putty man? I know this would look great on my desk... Great job clint!
