I distinctly remember being out for a drive with my wife, listening to a firend's retro 80's music radio show. He also plays theme songs from TV shows. My wife and I were talking when the theme song for Fal Albert came on. I may have, inadventantly, cut off whatever my wife was saying and said, "Fat Albert, I could make a Fat Albert out of Blob." (Fortunately I have a very understanding wife, actually knew what I was referring to.)
Well the base figure is as I mentioned Blob (needed too much Scuplty to use Pyro.) I actually made 2 of them, one for me and one for our friend. Basically I used Super Scuptly to make the hair, collar, sleeves, more belly, smooth out the legs to make them more like pants, and the pants cuffs. The bits of belt that you can see are from a toothpaste tube. The hair I made small "pokes" with an Exacto Knife to give it that afro look. Smoothed out and dried the Scuplty and then painted with Testors Model Master paints.
I'd consider myself still relative new at this though I have made a few figures. Any tips, comments or suggestions are welcome.
Good luck to everyone
