Huevos y Bacon


This month a Iberian character from the Asterix range.


This guy has long skinny legs, so I had to drill extra carefully.
But it went well, so some primer on him and paint.


I had to google for the right colors, but found him fast on the site asterix.com
so if you like more info about this Iberian guy take a look there!


I think he came out well in these colors...


Always fun to see these figures come alive wit just some paint.


That was all folks, hope you like him.

And of course I am also painting Romains form this range.
Still searching for new ones, that is a hard task lately.

Thanks for your visit at my blog.

Stay at home


As it is time to place a new monthly post, 
I had no idea what to paint in this crisis periode 
of Covid-19 better known as Corona virus.
It is sunny and I am now busy working in the garden...
And no gym, so we slowly expand.
This gave my a idea to make a fun version of me right now.


I took the fat fish seller from the Gaul village...


Cut away the fish, and drilled a hole through his hand..
Put a piece of paperclip into it.


The fish has been saved, so no protest action is necessary!


I cut the top of a rake from an empty plastic milk carton.


To emphasize the pandemic, I made a mouth mask out of tissue
I made the choirs from some pieces of yarn.


And so you converted your figure in just a few steps


A little primer on it ... and paint!



He immediately started helping me in the garden, how cool is that!


Yes, even in the small Gaul village, the virus has struck


I hope you like him, I sure do.
Keep save and stay at home.
Better times will come.

Batman


Yeah another superhero this month...
"Batman" also a famous character.


Another scratch idea using the same
Romain Asterix figure from the 70ths
like I did before...


With tissue paper first I made his legs thicker
and wit normal paper the top of his boots and
his small trunk, using all white woodglue.


Also from normal paper I made the top of his gloves.
And again using white woodglue to make the paper stronger.


For the ears I had to cut the original off (sorry)
and drilled 2 holes to put a small piece of paper clip
into them, a few layers white woodglue made 
the new bat ears... (better had to made them straight)


Again my time at kindergarden was useful.
Had to use a small scissors, to cut the right shape.


This is the base of making his total mask.
With more white woodglue I made one mask of it.

The same methode I did do for his boots,
made one total boot with lots of layers glue.



Last detail was of course  his cape, same methode
all made of paper and the white woodglue.. 


And I must admit he looks a bit strange.
But sprayed some gray primer on this new guy.


I used this picture as an example.


My black paint is a bit shiny, but it looks great on him!


So what do you think?
Does he look like Batman from the comic books?
I must admit I am very satisfied with the result.
For sure I will make also a Superman someday.
I got enough extra figures on my search to Romain solders.


And of course I am painting Romains as well
so back to the painting table, hope you like this conversion!


Bye..

Incredible Hulk


This month another famous character
from my childhood.
Meet the Incredible Hulk!


Made from the Romain sport guy of the Asterix series.
First I did cur away a part of his pants, so I could make a longer trouser.
And with some white woodglue shaped some legs.


And from simple paper I made the lower part of the trowser.
Of course it is torn, because our friend did grow fast.


Here you can see the simple way it fits.
Again some white wood glue and just put the paper part around his leg.


When both legs are finished, there is our new character: The Hulk!


The paint does finish it all, simple and effective.


Not a spectaculair conversion, but I guess everybody does recognizes him.
I tried to make his hair bigger with white wood glue as well,
but that didn't turned out how I had in mind, so finished that with some paint.
