Robot made with Polymorph

I have never seen Polymorph before. It’s a plastic that can be melted in hot water, molded in your hands and when it dries it is rock hard! Using not much more than some Polymorph, some cordless screwdrivers and some wooden curtain rings this robot  by XRobots was created.

" I constructed the pelvis part for the android first. This is made from aluminium strip material to make a frame which was then covered in polymorph. I used two different sized curtain rings to make ball sockets for the legs to plug into. The legs will have curtain rail ends attached to them which fit perfectly into the ball sockets, after a little sanding, to make sure they move around ok."
