Look, she made me my TV Boyfriend…who is now on top of my desktop staring at anyone who dares to look at him…
Yes, he is holding a brain…
Might I borrow it sometime? The brain I mean.
I think the one I have needs a break.
I dunno, Sylar is pretty greedy about his brains….
I am gonna have to ask Rootie how she makes those (the figs, not the brains) I need a new hobby….
That is very cool.
Just finished watching season 3 dvds today – Sylar gets more and more interesting as the series develops, and I definitely empathise more and more with him than most of the others. I thought the ending was a bit weak for him, but by now you know what happens at the start of season 4 whereas I don’t.
Sylar is one of the most well written characters of late…just when you think he might have a redeeming quality (like the bit of being in Matt Parkman’s head, helping him figure out the crime)he goes and pulls something completely evil (like the bit of being in Matt Parkman’s head, making him *think* he’s figuring out the crime). I go all “oh, he’s not so bad after all” then “Good Lord he’s even worse than I thought”. Very nice
The medium for the figures is polymer clay. It comes in a zillion colors. You work it and form it, then bake it at a low temp to harden it. You can buy it in little 2 oz blocks, or in 1 pound chunks. HobbyLobby and Michael’s both have it, but I get it from PolymerClayExpress.com because it’s cheaper there. It’s very relaxing to work with, and if you screw something up you just separate the colors, wad it into a ball and start over. It doesn’t air harden, so you can step away from it and come back later. There are different brands :Fimo, Sculpy (various versions), KatoClay, and Cernit. I use SculpyIII mostly, as it has the easiest texture to work with. Fimo tends to crumble, Kato and Cernit are pricy. It’s also paintable, taking acrylics, glazes and assorted finishes very nicely. You can press it into thin sheets (like for clothing), I use a pasta machine for that, but a rolling pin works just fine,or shape it with your hands or tools. If you do a tall or large figure, you’ll need to use a wire mesh armature for stability before it’s baked, and strength after. It can be a wee bit brittle after baking. Lots of info on it at the Polymerclayexpress.com web site.
I’m glad you like him, the kids were all “MOM! He’s loooking at meeee!”
i am now educated! And the parkman.sylar stuff this season has been AWESOME.
