Day trip to Kelantan Road! I caught a 800CP Golduck and 700+CP Electabuzz there but more importantly, I got some good stuff from the Thieves’ Market and the provision shop.
PROVISION SHOP ENG GUAN & CO.
I got some springs, screws and a bunch of random stuff from the provision shop.
Here, I got some more stuff.
I bought those blue and pink wire stuff in the cardboard box. They’re supposed to be those miniature light bulbs that’s used to decorated pasar malams, but here I got them with the metal piece without the light bulbs.
My original intention was to make two bull figures fight each other on a platform (thus the green box), but the finished product turned out rather differently…
TOOLS USED: hot glue gun, and the items below.
After creating the body of the bull, I realized that it was very difficult to attach the head piece to the body. So I dismantled it after this picture.
Afterwhich I combined the rest of the metal pieces (from the miniature lightbulb wires) to form a more compact body. I didn’t know what do to at this point, but simply put the metal rings to other pieces and eventually formed a mouse-like head piece. Then, I attached it to the body and produced a mouse! The coiled tail piece were the blue and pink wires which I removed from the miniature light bulbs.
There are springs with wire through them to form a backbone, and also to give the mouse a curved back for realism. I used two thicker springs (compacted together) for each hind leg and 3 thinner springs (also compacted together) to form each rear leg.
Rather unexpected finished product but I’m very happy with it!
Afterwards, the professor told us to make a simpler sculpture with our leftover pieces. I used the white tape that I dismantled from the original bull body piece to form tentacles of a jellyfish! Used a expanded metal coil to form the top curved part of a jellyfish.
This was a really fun project! I enjoyed making that trip to Kelantan Road to scavenge for the sculpture’s pieces and executing the project was exciting. Even though my original idea did not work out, I do like the unexpected finished product.
