Assembling the Parts

I still have the Mervin character to paint, but I thought I’d spend some time in assembling his moving load.

Here’s a quick shot of some of the assembled parts.

The mattress ended up looking really nice.  It’s actually a shame to cover it with other items!  I used brass nails with nicely rounded heads and trimmed them back and then glued them in drilled holes wherever a mattress “button” should appear.  Later, I painted the brass heads and gave them a light coat of polyurethane to seal them.

This weekend, I’ll do some final prep on Mervin and get the painting started on him.
