I knowit's getting late in the year to be starting new projects, but this is one I've wanted to do for awhile. This is my take on Devil's Chariot's Cauldron Creep. I wanted to have a stirrer for my witch's room and this fit the bill perfectly.
I wanted to pattern it off DC's original sketch:
I used an old Wisecrack Jack from Gemmy (I still need to figure out how to hack him to get rid of those stupid jokes. Anyone?). 'Ol Jack was already articulated but with a few modifications I think he's creep worthy. the basic frame work is aluminum barstock. I had to put in eyehooks at his right elbow and left wrist. He stands about 32" tall.
The motor is one a friend gave me from the scrap pile. Probably around 10-15 rpms. He is skinned with masking tape (to hide the framework) which will be painted with a brown color for aging.
Still have a ways to go with this one but at least the major mechanics are complete. I hope to get him up and running over the weekend.
All thanks to Devil's Chariot for the concept for this great prop!
