He really a nice guy even thou. he looks a little strange.

    I just started experimenting with these. I tried gluing a pot to the top of a shaved part of the head...the glue (E6000) ate away the styrofoam. back to the drawing board. What did you use to paint yours, so they last outdoors?

      @Janaan All the ones I have made I carved a hole in the top, filled with dirt and then planted a ground cover type plant. They have held up through the year in our crazy weather. That E6000 glue works great. I like to use it for my project outdoors.My paint was just acrylic and spray paint. Even that has held up.Fun to make and hope you will post yours.

    Do you have to prep the head before you paint it? also what type of paint?

      @Donna Hagen I just spray painted the heads and used acrylic for lips and eye lashes. She has been out all winter and she still looks the same.
