.."whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouse, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos gets such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then I account it high time"...to make some more Mushrooms....Ismail & I approach the problem differently

 

A few days ago, the symptoms began to appear. Now I that the end in is in sight, I'll post what I have been up to.

These Fellow already had their blanks made. SO it was just a matter of adding beads & green stuffing :

...

...that wasn't enough to snap the black mood; three larger ones were needed. First the Blanks:

...then the eyes (beads), & arms...somewhat more eye & arms then usual:

Your Fungi are awesome as always!

 

The eyes on the cap are a great twist!

 

Thanks for the kind reply, X. I am glad you like them.

The eyes are raising the creepy bar.

Wow, these are amazing. Just last night I had an extra blob of green stuff left over and was wondering what to do with it. Now I know! Those sticks look really handy  for building on - what are they? They seem bigger than toothpicks.

Thanks for the kind reply, Pragma. I am delighted you like the stuff.

The smaller Mushrooms & the teeth are cocktail toothpicks. The larger Fellows are mounted on bamboo skewers; the kind used for shish kebabs. The skewers they use for pinwheel steaks are great for really large Mushrooms.

Left over green stuff & plumber's epoxy putty is how I started on the mushrooms & other stuff. Not being wasteful is creative in & of itself.

Cool, thanks. I will probably start off with toothpicks and see how it goes. My wife really hates mushrooms, so these will make great antagonists!

 

Have fun with it. If you have any questions, ask away.

...still lacking anything resembling ambition, I did a couple more Mushroom...I have a lot to do to make up for some I've recently given to friends on other fora.

These two are rather less involved. They are seen here with the others & Leo for a size check:

...when I have extra green stuff from making faces, I use it for mushrooms. When I have leftovers from making Mushrooms, I do faces:
