Peg People Superheroes

Did you read my comic yesterday?


Now we're onto the how and why I made these little guys.


Five days before my son's birthday I read this post by A Girl and a Glue Gun and reminded myself of, "Oh, yeah, I wanted to do that for my son's birthday."  Luckily for me I had that sweet reminder and was able to head out that day and started this really fun project.

She gives a great tutorial on the how-to so I didn't take any pictures of my process because you can get some good ideas from her.

Besides if I did do a tutorial it would go something like this, "Open google to find image inspirations, Draw on your peg dolls, paint them, outline them with a Sharpie Paint pen, and seal with Mod Podge."  That pretty much sums it up.

This little pen turned out to be quite the time saver and gave everything a nice finished look.  If you buy one be sure to get the extra fine point.

I wanted my heroes to have a pretty specific accurate look so to do this I pulled up a couple ideas from pinterest to see some peg dolls, but ultimately I just pulled up images from google of how the real superheroes looked to get their look just right.

For example for Thor I was looking at this picture:

Here's some other great resources for Peg Superheroes:

Here's a look at our heroes.
