Due to demand I have started to create instructions to build my models. I’ll be working my way through my various Brickheadz style figures first. Instructions can be quite time consuming to create and format so I am charging £2.50 for each and will email the instructions out.
I havent posted in a while, but have been busy creating and planning for my debut craft fair (more on that soon).
I’m a fan of Game of Thrones and had designed a couple of Lego figures a month or so ago. I didnt find them as easy to get in to as the Harry Potter ones – the characters arent all as easily distinguishable as those in Harry Potter. I think they just required me to be a bit more persistent and thus far I have created 13 different character models.
Had a go at the main characters from a couple of my favourite TV programmes from days gone by. The A-team were fairly easy as they have really iconic costumes – the cast of friends went through a wide range of looks, hairstyles, etc so were more challenging. The Only Fools and Horses figures are available to buy in my shop.
I’m like a kid at Christmas when I get my deliveries of Lego bricks. This morning was a special treat as three packages arrived.
I was able to make my Dobby, Draco, Lucius and Bellatrix figures today and am pleased with how they turned out.
Bellatrix’s hair was a bit fiddly to both design and build, but I think it looks pretty good.
A few people have asked how I go about designing and creating my models.
I use some software called stud.io to design in – it is great and allows you to access the full catalogue of Lego® parts.
One of its main benefits is its integration with Bricklink (like eBay for Lego). This means you can design your model, check the prices (and make changes if you need to) and then upload your shopping list to Bricklink.
I was unsure about ordering bricks from far and wide using Bricklink at first, but have had no issues with it thus far.
It may be possible to source certain parts from your local Lego shop Pick-a-brick section – this is worth doing if you need a few parts that they stock. The stock is very limited though and you really want to fill your cup to the top to make it worthwhile.
Get in touch if you have any questions.
I thought I would have some fun and build myself a website to showcase my work.
The website is built using WordPress and WooCommerce – it was easy to do and only took an evening.
I probably spent more time designing my logo than building the website.
