Short update on my CRESS CRITTER. I just have applied a basecoat filler and sanded down the ABS layers until everything was sleek & smoothed out. Then i applied the finish with white NC-paint to the prepared 3D print model. Now this fella should be good to go for a first mold! Check back soon…
After reconstructing the CRESS CRITTER information from a tiny bio-harddisk i was finally able to revive a first specimen of it! For the time beeing it’s growing fast and i do feed it with fern and other ancients herbs. More about these long time died out CRESS CRITTER next week…! :D
I wish you all a Happy New Year! The year is pretty young and i’ve so much new stuff in work!
First of all, the last few XMAS PEARBLOCK’s will find a new home today at my grandparents and grandaunt’s shelfs. They where a great joy to give away as Christmas presents. So i have one last left (No. 01/16). I will sell him here on the Page for you in a few days! Stay tuned if you want to grab this unique handcrafted 2.5 inch Wood Designer Toy by Pepe for your own collection.
Now to the latest: CRESS CRITTER – Keep your eyes open, long gone species will revive 2010! Check the data-sheets I found deep burried in a secret vault of this ancient little fella… Strange things will come, be warned! ;)
SQUIMONK – This chubby guy is my second entry for the Aarting DIY Toy Challenge! Please vote on aarting.com for my SQUIMONK!
SQUIMONK’s lives high up in the trees and rarely come down to ground to pick up the yummy fir cones. That’s the reason why they have a slightly beer-belly. As you can guess, they know very well how to brew really tasty fir cone beer in their brewery!

I’m really having a rush with these wooden toys…it’s getting more and more like an addiction. Everyday coming home from work with a new tiny toy in my pocket. As you can see my first PEARBLOCK did met some fellas to hang out at the woods! :) See some close-up’s of the new wood chaps below.
Today i had to work at the model workshop during the morning. I was really bleary-eyed from last nights page template customizing, but on the side of working i made me a quick wood toy. Had no sketches for this little guy, it was just cutting and sanding into the blue. The design has only two joints for the arms, so it’s kind of first prototype. I like him so far and looking forward to define some details (proportions, face, painting). maybe i’ll try out some silly ideas… ;)
The little wodden PEARBLOCK prototype is made out of pear and oak wood, finished and coated with natural linseed oil.
