My love of the character Admiral Ackbar is no secret to regular readers of my blog. Admiral Ackbar is a character from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. I thought I would share a sneak peak of my newest Ackbar creation.
Our local fair, which is coming up next week, is sponsoring a contest. The contest is to recycle a used bowling pin into a character, person, celebrity, represent a profession, etc. Hopefully, the judges will recognize him and understand the character.
I used air dry clay to sculpt the head and hands. I allowed it to dry for 24 hours before painting it. The clothing is 2 pieces of white felt and the belt is canvas.
This was a lot of fun to create and I came up with a lot of ideas. I wish I had more bowling pins. I am planning to use him as a book end after the fair.
We will see....... more to come about this project in a few weeks.
