Frankencat 2 by ReverendBonobo Frankencat 2 by ReverendBonobo
I liked my first Frankencat so much, I decided to do another one. I used bigger bolts, so he's not as balanced, but an extra bolt in his torso keeps him from toppling over. I think it turned out even better than the first one, so I may do a few more just to see how good they get.

2.5" tall, acrylic on vinyl toy, metal bolts.

Once again another great piece of work.  How did you manage to attach the bolts into the figure themselves.  Did you use a dremel or some type of adhesive?

Thanks!  I just start the hole with an X-Acto knife, then I screw the bolts in to where I want them (I get bolts that have about 1/4" with no thread). Unscrew them a bit, spread superglue all around the threads, then screw it back in and blot away any excess.

Thanks for the info.  I was thinking about adding some rivets to a Frankenstein vinyl I had and you gave me some great ideas on how I could add them.  I'm trying to think if I could use some epoxy to ensure they stay on after getting them a bit in.

Very nice work, indeed. I'm especially impressed with how much depth you were able to give the eyes.

Thanks. I'm really into adding depth to the featureless surfaces of the toys.
