Well, I really liked what Dave Lowe does to them, and decided I would try it. This was my first of three that are about done. And, well,this what I did to mine. Hope you like it.

To mis-quote the movie "Christine!" "You can polish a turd!" (they said:"Can't" ) Bluck looks fairly presentable painted as you have him, and he probably looks even better at night, just like Me!

Great job! He looks really good!

I always paint up my Bluckies, too. They look so cheesy when you get them.

Love it! I have started painting mine too. It's amazing what a little paint can do for these guys. Like the blue outlining...hmm..may have to try one like that myself.

Well, everything is exactly as it came, except for a new neck hole and 1" PVC with clay rings for the spine extension. And paint, of coarse.

There's another thread here somewhere....crap...can't find it...I think I have it bookmarked at home & I'm at work right now...anyhooo, there's another thread where someone has done all sorts of wonderful things with Bluckies. Dressed 'em up as ToTers in the yard, repainted them, etc.

If I can find it I'll post it or maybe someone else here can remember who posted it or what it is titled? Maybe Hilda did it? I can't recall right now.

Evil Elf ~ I LOVE your paint job on it. So much better! I've wanted to do that too. Your blucky is impressive! :)

Oh sure. Blame Hilda. 'Hilda did it.' hahahahahaha ;)
Actually, I did pose a bunch of skellies on the side of my house after reading DaveintheGrave's great tutorial for his ToT skellies. I'll go grab Dave's thread and link it. :D

I kinda thought Hilda would know about that thread. I was hoping she'd chime in or someone with that thread link would chime in because I just went through my links & it wasn't there but it is now!!

Thanks everyone! Hearing, well, reading, all of this makes me want to finish them faster. I really appreciate it! :D

Wow, his and yours are pretty cool, Hilda. Good to know there's someone else who doesn't hate these. :eek:

You've given your bluckys personalities. Good job. By the way, what's that white stuff in the background? I think I remember seeing something like that. :D

scareme: Thanks. And yea, I'm really tired of that stuff hanging around.

Hilda: I Used a piece of 1" PVC that runs from the neck into the pelvis. It's diameter is perfect to match the pre-existing "spine", and it connects onto a T and two 90 degree connectors in the pelvis, and that connects to 1/2" PVC in his legs, helping him stand. The rings are rolls of air-dry clay wrapped around the pipe (sand the printing off first). The rings and pipe actually look off-white in the picture.

And I should mention: I cut a new hole for the spine. In a real skeleton, the spine connects onto the back center of the pelvis and the front angles downward. It's a small thing, but small things really add up. :)
