Near Charm by snoday Near Charm by snoday
It's Near from Death Note holding a toy robot.

The first time I tried this, Kairi kept hanging on me and smooshed my robot after I'd almost finished it. ;/ And Near's hair was the biggest pain in the butt. I had to start over 3 times on that, and I kinda smooshed his arms and legs in the process. (He's got one leg kinda indian-style, the other one up like L's, one hand on his knee, the other on the robot. I know it's kinda hard to tell.)

The robot's head looks a little different in the bottle, 'cus it broke off when I was jamming him in there. The first time I glued it back on, it was all crooked. SO I had to rip it off, glue his eye back on, and get it to go on straight, which took a few tries.

Overall, I'm happy with it. I didn't glue the cork in like I usually do though, 'cus I was thinking about making Mello with some chocolate and throwing him in there too. Just a thought, I dunno if I'll get around to it....

Is this layout any better than the last one?
Are there any suggestions/requests for what I should do next?

---
Made with: stretch and bend sculpey, a needle, a glass bottle charm, cheap super glue

EDIT: It doesn't seem to want to show up full size, so if you want to see the detail, you may need to download it.

I thought the robot was a bunny first.. but seriously, this is insane, so tiny and yet so detailed, namely the hair! :faint:

Doesn't it get damaged when it rolls around in the bottle?

And thanks for the comments. Looking at my old stuff makes me want to get back to clay.

Nope. I used rubber clay just for that reason. Harder to work with, but worth it.

Wow, that's old. I should re-do this one (when/if I get a break from school). I'm sure I could do better.

I've considered it before and decided I couldn't make a living at it. (I have a family to worry about. That's why I'm in school and have no time for anything now.)

Though, I do take commissions as they come, (and I could always make charms to sell at conventions during the breaks between quarters).

OMG how'd you do it I want a mello one its sooo cute your amaizing and the real mystery is howd you get it in that bottle

I made it of colored "rubber Sculpey" with a needle, so it won't break once it's inside the bottle. (Normal Sculpey, Super Sculpey, etc. break pretty easily, especially the hair. "Rubber Sculpey" is a messy clay to work with though. It sticks to everything.)

Some of them are small enough to slide right in the bottles, others... since they're made of "rubber Sculpey", I use a crayon of the same color to push them in. Sometimes they break, as with this one, and it's difficult to glue to peices back together once they're in the bottle, (but it is possible).

Thanks! ;D I usually use a needle to help get it right. (Also, once you have the body and the head done, you don't want to hold it, or you'll smoosh it. Ya' leave it on the foil and let the needle to most of the work.)

I use a needle, and it does take practice. (I've slowly worked my way smaller and smaller.) My mom thinks I should start a line of "micro sculptures".
