Diorama: Calvin & Hobbes Murderous Snowmen
A great running gag in the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes was the disturbing snowmen created by Calvin. There's a quite a few strips collected here.
"Twisty Tie" has made a wonderful diorama inspired by Calvin's murderous snowmen.
Twisty Tie says: It was built on a wedding cake foil base that is about 20 cm in diameter. The snow is white felt with cotton wool making up the snow drifts. The snowmen were made out of newspaper balled up and then covered strips of newspaper and PVA glue and then given a final coat of white tissue paper. The arms are some sort of flower arranging floral wire. The axe, signs, and fence were made out of card.
