Let's talk about electricity this month...
I started to strip this electrical wire...
Then this trainee electrician got to work with it
Yes you see correctly,
I drilled some holes and then filled
them thread by thread with some glue
Then it was time for the hairdresser,
so the scissors went in to make the hair a bit more realistic
From a flattened paperclip I made a screwdriver,
the handle from several layers of PVA glue
Then a coat of primer over it
And with some paint it soon became a clumsy electrician, \
with his hair standing straight up....
I am totally happy with how this figure turned out
But the conversion continues, starting with a bouncy ball,
which when you throw it on the ground starts flashing...
Wondering what's inside, this one carefully cut open...
It was a very small mechanism with a red and blue flashing light
Just used the soldering iron to replace the switch mechanism for a wire,
and made a push button on it right away.
In a jar lid I drilled a hole for the push button,
and made a plate out of foam to cover it
Just testing, yes this is going to be totally fun!
From old plastic material I made a switch box
Just priming this one too, and printed out
a picture of a burning switchbox to stick inside
That already looks perfect...
Using filler (from crochet), I made a plume of smoke
that I reinforced with clear varnish.
I also printed out some more signs to stick on the outside.
Then just drawing a tile path in the foam,
and painting it grey, next to it the sand also coloured.
Then glue the two together,
the flashing lights are behind the closed door....
Then going with my grass applicayor for the first time,
it soon turned green...
Be careful, of course,
because we do work under high voltage on this project!
and then this is the final result!
Extra attention to danger of high voltage
To emphasise why his hair stands up hahaha
In this video, you can see how the effect adds some extra in the end!
This was a giant fun conversion project, hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did.
