I finally had a chance to add that "seasonal" highlight to Hina, so she's now more of a rain goddess:



Ah, the sprinkle that startles first timers in the ETR garden - unless I claim that prime spot first and enjoy the refreshing shower. Here there are no puddles to clean up, at least!

No other build news to share on this thread, but I did do an exploratory sketch a few months back:

Time to bust out the cardboard, paper, flour, salt and water again...







Not done skinning it yet, but the cardboard was getting soggy so I had to stop for the time being. Dried out nice and fast in the sun.

Yep - tinsel! Had the idea from the get-go but didn't see any in stores and forgot until the holiday season rolled around.

And thanks - Indy is another hobby, but I didn't get to play in the snow until I visited my folks back in Calgary over the holidays.

Incredibly cool! Are these weather proof?

As for Maui, you could make a motorized belt that would push marbles into the dipper bamboo and have it work the same way as water. Just a thought.

They all look GREAT!

With all the cardboard and packing paper piling up around the holiday season I had to put one together. This time, not ETR related at all.

I started by just rolling up some cardboard and drawing a face and scoring:



Then unrolled, cut, re-rolled, repeating as necessary. Got out the hot glue to hold the pieces together:



Then used "cooked" paste this time, which dries clear:



I'm going to leave this one unpainted.
