similar to the 3D phloating eyez that I "weld" with acrylic [in this case, Bug-Bond]...
the rattle is secured to the mono and tied in place...
the extended overhang enhances material control and anti-fouling characteristics...

a bit of buck tail to encourage fuselage rigidity and insinuate bulk...

Devil n' Blend... a curious hand assembled material...
exclusively available from Scott at the Bear's Den...

another layer...

and another darker colour layer to complete the silloette...

3D eyez Bug-Bonded in place and the head takes shape...


relative size... coin = 31mm

Acrylic Bonding is no longer restricted to the dentist's office...
lookin' for a more defined body...
'welded on some beta keratin [pheathers] for some subtly enhanced contrast...
"before" and "after" shotz...




another cousin with side visual impact panels...


Idle handz... so much for leaving "well enough" alone...

What do ya' think?!...
