Picked up some cheap figures at a car-boot sale, and decided to use this one as a master splinter movie style. This figure was about 11 inches but I managed to shorten it down an inch an was thin so I decided to use hair off an old deteriorated mask which was ginger in color an I darkened it a little using dye, I covered the legs, tops of the hands, upper chest and re-sculpted the head using putty,then covering it with hair. The whiskers I got off an old hair brush,-I put tiny pin holes into the putty then putting the whiskers in and using glue to secure them. The rags were easy to stitch together, I just added a bit of grayish paint to make them look dirty and padded them out just a little.The tail was a bendy straw which I shortened then secured to the back of the figure by drilling a hole in the back then using glue.The splinter cane, I don't know what this was, it just looked suitable for splinter.

Perfect movie likeness, I have to put myself on that list of this being my favourite splinter custom too!

This looks amazing! I liked the Jim Henson designs for the splinter in that movie even though I didn't like the look of the turtles.

Now that is impressive--very Jim Henson-esque. I like that you were careful to make him in scale too (in comparison to a 12" figure). This is my new favorite Splinter custom of all time.
