Still busy working away on the art doll duo’s accessories…

I am still making the accessories but here is a quick look at what I have been doing…it may explain why the man is standing in a strange position… it is all made from recycling bits of junk and unwanted things …

a tiny tambourine, pipework, funnel and the beginnings of a drum…

a close up of the tambourine

and pipework.

working on two drums…

small drum

big drum

adding cymbals to the pipework… and making sure they clash when string pulled

trying the drum on for size …

he seems pleased! He is wearing a harmonica in a holder around his neck.


working on the stand…

the little girl trying out the stand…still lots to do on it …

adding the cymbals and tambourine…


making the drum sticks which will bash the big drum, single cymbal and tambourine.

and a strange trumpet-like instrument which he will be holding in his hands…

still got lots to do … but I will keep adding the pictures as I go…
