Most individuals who’ve skilled the 80s will know the outdated film the determine is lent from: the “Little Store of Horrors”, a relatively weird black comedy in regards to the seductive energy of a diabolic plant. Extra exactly, Audrey 2 is a fairly manipulative speaking flytrap from outer house, which feeds primarily on human blood, and which grows significantly throughout of the story, after being fed with a number of predominant characters.
I’ve liked the film since I can keep in mind and I’ve at all times dreamed of getting my very own Audrey 2 at residence. Throughout the Corona shutdown I had (like so many) far more time than ever anticipated and used it to place my little Audrey 2 undertaking into motion.
Since procuring was not doable as ordinary, I might solely use the supplies I had at residence—an outdated flowerpot, a porcelain egg, plaster, modeling clay, paint, and varied outdated ferns.
And right here she is now, my little Audrey 2—in her genesis and her closing type. The gallery in addition to the entire (and far bigger) work-in-progress documentation will be seen on my web site. Additionally, if you’re , you will discover my earlier DIY undertaking—an octopus chandelier—right here on Snugme.

Audrey 2 in her new residence
I began my Audrey 2 with an outdated porcelain egg, which I lined with plaster bandages and reduce open once more alongside the mouth line
Then the lips have been formed with modeling clay
The work on the inside of the mouth begins. First, the gum edge is fashioned with aluminum foil after which lined with plaster
Then the mouth’s inside constructions are formed with modeling clay
The purple portray of the mouth follows
We proceed with the skin of Audrey 2’s head: Right here too, the top constructions are carved and modeled with modeling clay—then coloring
Adapting the tongue to the palate—modeling and coloring
Gluing the 2 halves of Audrey 2’s head collectively and fixing the plant stem (manufactured from wire core wrapped in plaster bandages)
Constructing the primary leaves from paper, kitchen paper, wire and glue
Fixing the leaves round Audrey 2’s head
Fixing the plant stem within the flower pot (by pouring plaster within the pot). Modeling the stem constructions with modeling clay
Including aerial roots (wire and modeling clay), attaching synthetic leaves
And naturally, the tiny seedlings of the imply mom from outer house should not be lacking
Gluing extra leaves round Audrey 2’s head…
…and larger leaves on the stem
Now just a few leaves of synthetic fern need to be added and Audrey 2 is completed!
