Spaghetti

Great for tightrope walking, too.

  1. I'm impressed! How did you get her balanced? LOL

    1. There are two products that I use. One is an adhesive called 'Sticky Max'. It's a waxy substance that secures the figures in place. I suppose it's similar to magician's wax. It is sticky enough to keep these objects in place but not permanent like glue, so you can remove them and move them around. The other is poster putty, also a fabulous product. I add a teeny tiny pieces wherever it's needed - usually beneath the feet if the figures are standing - and voila! my figures are upright. This one was extremely challenging because not only did I have to secure the spaghetti in place, I also had to keep the figure from toppling over. It's top heavy and kept flipping upside down. Took a few tries (and perhaps a few bad words) but I finally got it all in place. That's a great question, Louise!

  3. Ooh, that looks dangerous! I hope she has taken some safety precautions...or is a good swimmer! Love how she can do it with an umbrella!

    1. Being a good swimmer would be number one here. Well, at least I was close by...just in case :)

  4. You've come up with another great creative image.
    I wonder if she would still walk the spaghetti if the water was boiling
