The detail in your models is great, I hope he liked them! How long did they take you to make?

How big is it?   What did you use for the eyes?   I like how you made the man's vest. Cracking job!

The whole model is made from Fimo polymer clay, except the papers of course! The eyes are also made from fimo with a little black half bead for the pupil.
It measures around 6 inches high and the base is 5 inches across. The whole thing, including cooking time to cure the fimo clay, took around 3 hours....though the 3 hours were grabbed inbetween cooking, taxi-ing the kids around and stopping the baby from eating my clay!!!
And yes, he loved it! Thank you for posting my piccy!
