Pipe Cleaner Calvin and Hobbes by fuzzymutt Pipe Cleaner Calvin and Hobbes by fuzzymutt
Calvin and Hobbes - two of my favourite characters.

-the log is hollow - you can look right through to the other side.
-the base is plexi-glass, painted blue for the 'creek'.
-I don't think I used any ink in this one; The characters are 100% pipe cleaners.

-Calvin is approximately 3 inches tall, Hobbes 6 inches. Overall length is 10 inches.

however you do kind of cheat. I don't use any other materials or paint. i keep it kind of abstract.

I don't proceed past the head of a character until I capture the proper look.

I noticed the pipe cleaners aren't the super fuzzy ones. where do you purchase them?

:iconfuzzymutt:
fuzzymutt Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2011
Wherever I can! I use 3mm, 4mm and 6mm. I had plans for the really fuzzy ones, but I got sidetracked by so many other great ideas.
I am still looking for a decent Supplier who will allow me to order the colours I want, in whatever quantity I want and not just the multi-packs - it is quite annoying to have to purchase a large quantity of small bits to build up my stock...Michaels, are you listening? :shakefist: (they will not order specific colours for me...grrr)

Thanks for Watchin'

Yike! Don't go to Michael's. They are super exepensive. I am surprised you don't purchase the pipe cleaners online. All you have to do is google, "wholesale chenille stems" and a whole world of colors come up. However, I can't find that fleshy color that you used on Calvin anywhere.

Did you not read my comment? Michaels sucks...:shakefist: I go in there for a couple basic colours, and only if I am in a pinch.
If I locate the 'flesh' colour anywhere(it's now called Peach), I will let you know. I have not seen it since I bought the last batch from Craft Canada before they went belly up a few years ago...

(You're not afraid to say that Jesus is your Saviour, but you are afraid of the number 13? If that is the case, why did you have it added onto your name?...:confused:) :bucktooth: - Just being a smart-a**...:wave:

negative thirteen is my favorite number and triskadecaphobia is my way of making fun of people who are afraid of a number. so, all you who are triskadecaphobic...13!

he he he...

I like the number 13 too - I had that number when I played Volleyball in grade 9(way, way back...). I wanted 13 as my jersey number for Hockey, as well, but apparently Catholics have an aversion to the number, for some strange reason...(it is bad luck to have thirteen people sitting at a table...The Last Supper, y'know...)

By the way, I don't mean to burst your bubble, but you spelled it wrong...it should be: triskaidekaphobia ... :blahblah:

You do things with pipe cleaners that are mind altering. It was a total bummer when the cartoonist retired.
