Zippy the Robot

Zippy the Robot by Patricia Krauchune
Here's a little bottle robot I made using a small piece of zipper, some ball chain and gears. 

Supply List:

Makin's Clay®:  Black        Ball Chain                                     3 Mini Gears
Small Bottle                         2 Square Eyelets                           3 Glass Pins
Piece of Zipper                    1 Large Gear / 1 Medium Gear     5 Minute Epoxy
Krazy® Glue                       Small Bulb                                    Art C & Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Wax

Recommended Makin's® Tools: 

Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine®      Makin's® Texture Sheet - Tractor Tread B


Trim the piece of zipper to fit onto the front of the small bottle.

Use some Krazy® Glue to attach the zipper to the bottle.

Roll out some Black Makin's Clay® on the # 2 setting on the Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine®.

Cover the bottle with the rolled out clay and immediately add texture using the Tractor Tread B  Makin's® Texture Sheet.
                                                                                                                                                              Push a couple of square eyelets into the side of the bottle to form a "socket" for the ball chain arms. Secure using Krazy® Glue.

Next I glued a medium size gear to the bottle top followed by a bulb for the robot's head.
Three small gears were added inside the zipper space.

A small piece of ball chain was added around the neck of the bottle and three glass pins were used to secure the small gears.                                                                                                                              

I used 5 minute epoxy to attach a large gear on the bottle bottom.

The robot was "colored" using Art C and Cosmic Shimmer Gilding wax.
