Cryptid-Creations' Copycat

By Mark Patraw | Add comment Add a comment


I had been trying to think of something to make as a Mother's Day gift for several weeks, so, when I saw this "Copycat" image, illustrated by "Cryptid-Creations" (Piper Thibodeau), at DeviantArt, I instantly knew that I had finally found the right subject matter to model. If, like myself, you like cute drawings of word puns, then her work is definitely worth checking out!


Newsprint, tissue paper, cardboard from a cereal box, white notebook paper, magazine paper, wire twist ties, acrylic paint, ink, white glue, super glue, fishing line, and transparent plastic from a memory card package (base only).

[Excluding the base] 10.0 cm (3.9") wide x 3.0 cm (1.2") deep x 5.5 cm (2.2") high.

Two days; May 7th and 8th (2016).
I also attempted to fabricate the copy machine several days earlier, but I screwed something up when I was measuring and laying out the device on the flat cardboard, so, I gave up on that design and discarded it.

Lots more photos/info:
