Badgering about...

Hey guys,

IT'S ME AGAIN!!! I said I'd be back soon!

Do you know the story...The wind in the willows?..if you do YAY! If you don''ll know a little bit by the end of this (hopefully:))

Any who...the pens, pencils and utensils pot I made a lil while back I said came from the Doctor Banardo charity shop just round the corner from Nana's house. 
I can't remember whether I said that she also bought a wooden Badgery thingy as well as the pot.

Would you like to see it?..


We weren't sure what it was. Nana and I thought it was a guinea pig, Dad and Grandad thought it was a badger, Mum and Nan thought it was a Jurassic Hamster and Amy thought it was a tail-less mouse.
After a long time starring at it, we decided it was a Bager!  

As The Wind In The Willows' four main characters are...Ratty, Mole, Toad and Badger...I thought it would be a fun idea to make this lil guy the Bager...complete with specs in true Willows stylie.


Onto the blank model, I added grunge paste to the textured areas (side of head & back) and dabbed paint with a sponge. The colours were...PaperArtsy Snowflake, Little Black Dress and Elephant.  
The spectacles and eyes came from the Tiptree Cheap Shop and onto the white areas and feet, I added a little shimmer with Dreamweaver metallic powder 'Moonstone'

Hope you like this and if you have any questions please ask and I'll get back to you ASAP.
ArtymeB:) Xxx.

Oh wow that's amazing! He's definitely a badger! You've really brought him to life!
(If he was a hamster you'd know by know as he would have escaped and wandered off under the cooker or some such ...)
