FAQ

Q: How long do they take to make?
A: Between 1-7 hrs. Spuderman and Kill Dill took the longest due to the fine lines and hair. Other like Blue Man Group are very easy.

Q: Can I buy one?
A: In short not really. Many of the spuds were torn down to make new ones. Also the modelling clay only sets hard when fired in an oven. The Mr.Potatohead plastic will melt in an oven so they remain very fragile. I didn't really think it through when I started.

Q: What clay do you use?
A: Belgrave Modelling Clay. It's cheap $3.75 for a 500g bar and comes in heaps of colours. I tried Fimo but it doesnt feel as nice and the colours don't blend as well. The RoboSpud one was done in silver Fimo.

Q: What's your studio look like?
A: I do all these in my dining room. It's a mess. Here's a photo of all the crap i have collected as part of doing this.

My Mr. Potato Head Junk

Q: What tools do you use?
A: My hands, Google images and a plastic clay knife I got for $1. Before I had the knife I used to cut the clay with a credit card.

Q: Have you approached Hasbro about these?
A: Yes but I havent heard back from them. I'm hoping I don't get told to take them down.

Q: Can I suggest one?
A: Sure email me at ash [at] mrpotatomash [dot] com

Q: How do you fund this complete waste of time?
A: Creative wise I'm a founder of Soap Creative, I also own Bannerblog.

My personal blog TheSlipperyTruffle is updated occasionaly and we just started a CD cover design blog called Sleevage. Oh and I look after Earthwallpapers. Phew
