I found directions for making Sparky on a baking site called sprinklebakes. Instead of gum past I used paper clay and styrofoam balls to build him. Since Sparky is all ready a zombie dog I didn't go overboard on the gore but stuck to the original. His body to head ratio is off, other than that I was pleased with how he turned out.
I didn't take photos of the process because I'm sure the way I built him was not the easiest or correct way to do it.
Did I ever mention my independent, self sufficient need to not follow directions?
Sparky didn't make the size requirements so I decided to make another small zombie. This was the perfect opportunity to pull out my Zombie Felites book and have a go at one of the patterns. I chose the bunny because one of my partners favorite colors is pink. Other than enlarging the pattern I followed the instructions exactly. (Yeah Me!! ... The second zombie bunny, not so much). While taking this bunny's photo I used a funny carrot I had made one day with left over paper clay as a prop. After the photo shoot I had a light bulb idea and the sign Eat Your Vegetables was born.
