CONTEST: Pipe Cleaner Creations

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

CONTEST: Pipe Cleaner Creations

Post by John-Boy » Wed Aug 02, 2006 5:26 pm

The latest contest - pipe cleaner creations. Build whatever you can from your pipe cleaners, take a picture and post to this thread. After a week or two I'll select a winner (with the input from Sanchez.) I'll be looking for originality, craftsmanship, realism, and overall theme. The prize will be a tin of tobacco from my cellar. All judging will be totatlly subjective, possibly unfair, and certainly unreasonable. If you need help hosting your photo feel free to email the image to me and I'll post it for you. If you need help taking a picture of your creation, feel free to snail mail your pipe cleaner creation to me and I'll take a picture and post it. If you need help getting ahold of pipe cleaners, what are you doing on this board? Remember all rules can be changed at any time. As always please throw your support behind posts that you think should win. This contest is the youth room so good natured mocking is also welcome and appreciated (though mocking the judge will not help you win the tobacco.) Chatter is what makes it fun. Uuuuh... did I miss anything?

Shhhh ... he's a foreigner ... doesn't know our ways

By the way, back in the late 90's, I had a traveling exhibit of my all-pipe-cleaner art called "Mona Cleaner: The Complete Works of Leonardo da Vinci in Fuzzy Wire". it's back in mothballs now after a stint visiting some of the dusty old art houses on the continent, but i can get it out and take some photos. Would that count?

Do not tease, torment or scorn Little Sanchez, for though he is but a boy made of pipe cleaners he has feelings just like the rest of us.

Okay... so we've got our first entry. Let me take a minute to give my comments so far. I certainly appreciate your breaking the ice and getting the first entry up. But perhaps you didn't get the gist of the contest :evil: You're supposed to make something out of the pipe cleaners... like your own little Sanchez, for example. And while this is a very nice photo, excellent lighting, displays the label very nicely, I'd also like to point out since it's hosted on Obie's site, I wonder if it's actually your creation :x . I'll consult with Sanchez on how this matter will be handled...

OK, I'll admit it.

It is really an anti-human rally being held by pipe-cleaners.

Have you seen what people do to pipe cleaners.........they stuff them in nasty ole pipes..........and they bend them into all kind of wierd shapes........then they......... 8O ..........OH MY............is it too late to just take the pix down???

Maybe it will make amends for my amendments - 8O - awwww, y'all know what I mean - :lol: :lol: :lol:
