Reading bunny



Years ago, inspired by my friends who made me all those cool Sculpey sculpture gifts, I tried my hand at it a few times. One of those few was this birthday gift for my wife, who is a writer. (She also likes bunnies.) -- PL

Very nice indeed.

Okay-- I have a question, though it isn't about the comic. The Neca Mousers-- will they be fully articulate in that they can open their mouths? I ask because there is a LOT of interest in this bit of information.

And.. regarding the 4Kids show, will you all have the same input you had with the 2K3 series, the "Tribunal" shows and (eventually it seemed, once the P&S goons looked the other way) the Fast Forward series?

I don't know how articulated the NECA mousers will be. I hope they do have jaws that open and close, but even without that I think they still look good.

Re: the upcoming new season of the 4Kids TMNT series ("Back to the Sewer", I believe it is called) -- yes, I worked on that in the same way I worked on all of the other seasons of the show. -- PL

Thanks for answering.

I like the looks of the mousers, too, but I've been amazed at just how serious some people are about the mouth question.

And it's good to know Mirage's fingerprints are on the "new" series.


I will say, I'm not happy about the whole Splinter thing, but *shrugs* nothing I can do about that.

Thank-you again for the answers.

I have a sculpy question...

First off, is it a liquid, or is it more like molding clay? I've seen two versions and one seems more geared toward kids and the other pro's..

Also, what's a good place to buy it from? I'm thinking the Technodrome might a tad too advanced for a first try, and instead have either opted to try a turtle, or one of Krangs android bodies as a test run...

BTW, really like the sculpture :). How long did it take to make?

Thanks :)

-->> N, noth the more commercial Sculpy and Sculpy II and the ' pro- ' Sculpy brands are yeh, Neil..

Modeling clays like ..you have to mostly cook them in an oven or kilns. Vaughn taught me however, depending on the clays you use, you can even use items like a hair dryer to 'cook' them as well outside of an oven, also depending on the project.

There is also alternatives like Fimo and an interesting Sculpy like clay : Magic Sculp that air dries.

Neil i bet for as massive a project you are goin' for :: The highest quality Sculpy is what you are gonna want to go for.

Then again .. i've used the standard store-brand sculpy on some rather unconventional things myself like my marionette puppets & Articulated scuptures.

Dude.. also just ask at the crafts & model shops. Try to give them your best idea of what your project is so you can feel confident of the type of product you want and need.

Have you ever tried your hand at sculpting toy designs rather than drawing them?
