The Secret Paper Project




For almost a year i toyed at the idea of making a figurine for my good friend Donovan. He has always remembered my birthday and takes great trouble to get me something really nice... every year..... i on the other hand am a doing lah (not on purpose of cos) ..... so last year (Sept 06) i decided to make him something i saw over on the net. It was a figurine of the witchking riding a fell beast from the Lord of the Rings movies....

I researched for almost a year..... ofcos...most of the time i did alot of procrastinating lah ... then on the 1st day of September 2007 i started on the project...... what i thought wld take a few days to make, (his birthday was on the 15th of Sept) turned out to be a hell of a task ....of cos there were weeks where i didnt work on it at all.....but all-in it took me almost 4 months to finish it....

THe idea was to use any kind of material available to me for as minimal cost just for the heck of it.....So i used newspaper, MAsking tape, bits of wire, lots and lots of tissue paper, one small mecha figurine, Aluminium foil, a piece of nylon string and an egg crate. Apart from the mecha warrior, the most i spent on this secret project was poster paint and lots of PVA glue..... The hardest part of this project was to keep it a secret for so many months........... but i actually had fun making the figurine and it turned out well.... but me as usual kept trying to make it better, not satisfied with the outcome....so it took alot of effort to stop and except how it looked, otherwise it would have taken a few more months ...
