I'm trying to make a D&D monster and figure, can't figure out how to sculpt the 1 inch, sorry 3cm figure.

Try starting with an armature - make a wire stick-man in the pose you want, then stick pieces of clay to it to flesh it out to the size you want.

Is it clothed or armoured? Try making the clothing separately - thin sheets of clay, wrapped around the figure.

For sculpting tools, use needles, toothpicks, and the contents of your mother's manicure set. Keep them wet to stop the clay sticking to them.

Hey, it's amazing what you pick up while you're collecting kids that have been thrown out of art lessons (not my own kids, part of my job is occasionally dealing with "red card" incidents).

Phone calls home, half of lunchtime in detention, a step towards suspension... Consequential is right.

1) okay. at our school, they caught 2 people smoking pot, but all they got was a suspension. 2) yeah, i missed. i had a chess game, and was running late. 3) a bit off topic, does anyone in montreal know where to get holy water?

It varies - giving the teacher a bad attitude, swearing, refusing to work, throwing furniture, climbing out of windows ...

I teach middle (age 9-11) (for now, they all close in three years). It's a really poor area, and the kids learn to disrespect education at an early age (why should they do what we say when they don't do what their parents say?)

If a kid tried to smoke pot on site, we would call the police first, then County and then their parents. Instant Out. We had a kid turn up at school with a small bag of flour. He told his mates it was heroin, so we suspended him for two days.

We're harder than some other schools, but we have to be to keep the kids in line. Often, school is the only part of their lives with any boundaries and consequences, and many of them appreciate that.

How about the receipt for the clay? That would mean the golem owns itself, and is thus a free being.

(BTW, Firefox wants to change "golem" to "Ptolemy". Go figure.)

So today is my birthday and I am going to spend it sewing Robot and eating ice cream cake. :D I bought this gorgeous yellow fleece fabric yesterday, and various colors of felts. I'm excited. I just need to get a pattern going and I'll start. I'm trying to figure out if I want to attach the arms and legs using grommets or not. I might just sew them on...

Yep, sewing. I think I might just make a pattern when I feel good about how it looks. I'm going to try to do it mostly by hand, too, so people can easily replicate it. :)

Is it legal to sell a product based on an open-source design, if you aren't the original creator? Obviously Instructables sells Robot stickers, patches, and T-shirts, but would it be legal for you to sell me a Robot plushie? Question #2: How much?

I can't find the comment right now, but I distinctly remember somebody important saying that you could do anything you wanted with the Robot image as long as you didn't do it for profit.

I don't remember anything about at cost, though.
