I haven’t been updating recently but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working. I have completed another Tardis to add to my collection and I am really happy with how it turned out. I also have a Bender from Futurama that I made as well. Here are some pics of the completed projects
The tardis is a bit darker than the first one I did but I still think holds true to the original. When I was making the pattern I wanted it to be “to scale” so I actually made it to the same dimensions as if one of the 5″ Tenth Doctor figurines were standing next to it the figurine would hit the window frame in about the same spot.
I decided to make the soldering on the Bender peice a bit more distressed. I soldered the whole piece and then used black patina but after applying the patina I took a patch of steel wool and tried to rub off as much of the black as possible. I didn’t want to do just the silver cuz I didn’t want it to be too shiny. I don’t picture bender as a shiny robot. I think the distressing fits his character perfectly.
