T-Rex 2

Calvin has put a jaw bone on it now that opens and shuts. Clever boy.

Tyrannosaurus Rex

Calvin is making a t-rex out of clay. Goodness on knows what size it'll be as the head's pretty large.

Mega Shark

All finished. Calvin needs to work out a way of making things set hard in clay as the tips of the fins have crumbled a wee bit.

Still looks a pretty good model though. Calvin is sending this over to David Latt too.

Giant Octopus

Calvin has finished the Giant Octopus that he's sending over to his new best friend David Latt (the producer of Mega Shark v.s the Giant Octopus). Hopefully it'll arrive over in California in one piece.

He's made the tentacles with blood on the end like the shark has just bitten them off.

Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus 2

Calvin has started making the large model!

He's using air drying clay from the Early Learning Centre and is looks pretty smooth so far. He's going to make the octopus wrap around the shark.

God knows how we're going to get it shipped safely over to the US but that's a worry for another day.

Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus

Calvin got contacted by the producer of the movie Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus after he saw this blog site. He asked if Calvin could make him a wee model for his desk.

I managed to get hold of the Plasticene model he'd made back in October at my mum's house and I've taken another few photographs.

Calvin's going to make him a larger clay version.

Calvin's birthday!

Just so me and Sharlene don't forget, Calvin has helpfully marked his birthday in April.

Shaun the Sheep; pig character

Calvin found a model set he got for Christmas and decided to start making the pig character (don't know what it's called).

It's a bit of a cheat as there are bits of it that are plastic that you put the plasticine around. I think the snout and ears are plastic but I'm not really sure.

Chicken legs

Calvin's very slowly building the chicken in between other wee bits of work he's doing. In this picture you can see that he's making the legs from sweet wrappers, tin foil and strips of news papers. I think he's buying red or orange paint this weekend.

Calvin's inspiration

Here's a picture of toys Calvin's collected along the way. Lots of presents and pocket money.

His collection includes Ben 10, Simpsons, Lion King, Disney Cars, King Kong, Godzilla, Family Guy and Toy Story.

Family Guy chicken

Calvin is making the chicken from Family Guy. He's the character that usually rolls around on the floor with Peter Griffin whilst punching lumps out of each other.

He's made it from rolled up news paper, glue, silver paper and masking tape.

Not sure when he'll finish it but it's a pretty good start.

Toy Story

Our local shops are starting to stock up on Toy Story items so Calvin decided to make some miniature figures last night - Mr Potato Head, Hamm and Wheezy.

I've put a Euro coin at the side so you can see just how small they are. He's making Mrs Potato Head tonight I think. I hope she's brought Mr Potato Head's angry eyes!

And here's Chas - Morph's best friend and sometimes annoying mate.


Here's Morph from Take Hart. An old favourite that Calvin is in to just now.
