    Two in one Gumby........

    Did the finishing touches on Gumby a little bit ago. Still playing with the idea of plum browning him. I now have lots of ideas for future Gumby's. This one stands around 8" which is pretty much average for Gumby's. He was made from more wrought iron wagon wheel. The original plan was to hot punch in the face features. The mouth worked the best but when I tried the nose I felt like I was spinning my wheels. I had to resort to plastic surgery done with the drill press and rotary tool. I figure this fellow will bring some smiles.







    After looking at Gumby face I realized I forgot to give him eyebrows. Guess I'm not done yet.

    Two sides of Gumby.

    It looks like you have faces on both sides of one Gumby. Some pretty fancy work to make the feet do the right thing from both sides. I like Gumby, and definitely better with the eyebrows.

    What is that three-legged wrought iron stand I see in the background?

    Freakin Awesome Ray! I dig all that stuff, especially the cross. That is beautiful. But Gumby is special too, with that silly grin he has going. Looks like he's up to something... It's great to see your 'other' makerly side coming out, very cool. What's next?

    Eric, your right about the possibilities. For right now I'm having a heck of a time just playing with them. I've spent most the day working on Pokey. I've still got more work to do on him but I thought I'd show his wild side.
