this is my attempt at a WOOT Shirt inspired Man Eating Plant.
I saw this a few years ago and wanted to try my hand at this.
I was lucky enough to find a case of SoudaFoam (yes a whole case, I danced a creepy happy dance only a 41yr old man can do) It was in my apartment left over from construction. It is a rigid expanding crack seal foam/fireblock. I used two cans to make the "head" of the plant but for the "roots" I bought a can of flexible window foam GreatStuff.
The head is a Cardboard shell with an elastic band for jaw movement. the teeth are cut from foam mat and painted
These roots came out pretty good with the flexible window foam. A unexpected plus happened when I sprayed them out on a plastic trash bag so they wouldn't stick the the floor. In doing so the plastic formed to the expanding foam giving it a rounded backing instead of flat.
the fence is a repurposed crate that my neighbor was throwing out. All that was needed was to disassemble the crate and paint it white.
my intention is to make the head pop up and out with a simple (hopefully simple) mechanical arm control.
