I've had a particularly nasty virus for the past 10 days, when I've had no energy or inclination to anything. Feeling more human now, so I though I would introduce you to the latest member of my family!
This was a Powertex workshop which was particularly exhausting as it lasted 7 hours, but so enjoyable.
We started with a piece of shaped polystyrene and wrapped it in various layers of kitchen roll, masking tape and tin foil, which we then covered in Powertex. This was then fixed onto a steel rod embedded into a randomly carved piece of breezeblock. Wires were added for the fins and tails.
Finally got to work with various paints, overlaying mainly metallic and pearlescent colours.
But Dixie is ready for her close-up now!
