The Dungeon Rats were finished just in time to be included in our 2009 Halloween display. Named “Riff” and “Raff” the rats are mangy, malnourished and have a nasty disposition, their overall length is five feet long from tip of the nose to the tip of their tails.
The rats were made from recycled empty one gallon paint cans, newspaper, cardboard, plastic milk jugs, utility wire, plaster and plastic broom bristles.
A combination of papier mache strips and homemade paper clay were used to cover the armature, strengthen and add texture. The complete instructions can be found here.
