Grease is the Word by thinkpastel Grease is the Word by thinkpastel
Here's my entry to %semi-sweeties's Movie Contest Button by Shacchan :la:

As the title may have suggested :D , the movie I chose is Grease.
I love musicals and the 50's are my favourite decade, so it makes sense that Grease is one of my all-time favourite movies! :giggle:

:star: Click here for more pictures! :star:

I tried to reproduce the scene in which all the Greasers and Pink Ladies meet up at the local diner, the Frosty Palace. Click here for a screen cap!

Edit: whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? :omg: :omg: Huge, huge thanks to =Kida-neechan for suggesting this as a DD, and to ^cakecrumbs for featuring :heart:
I'm so gleeful right now that it's kind of awkward :D :woohoo: :woohoo:

:magnify: Technical breakdown:
Everything shown was handmade in a 1:6 scale; more specifically..

:pointr: Burgers are made with polymer clay and coloured with chalks and acrylic paints. Click here for WIP pictures!

:pointr: French Fries are also made with polymer clay and coloured with chalks. Click here for the DIY tutorial!

:pointr: Tray, plates, mustard and ketchup were all made with clay and subsequently varnished.

:pointr: Milkshakes are made of casting resin (base and cup), silicone (whipped cream) and paper clips (straws). Click here for WIP pictures!

:pointr: Frosty Palace's Menu was designed in Corel Photopaint. I've used this illustration for the snowman on the cover, and a scan from this site for the inside menu.

:pointr: Cigarettes are made of clay and painted with acryilic paints, while the cigarette box was designed in Corel Photopaint. Click here for close-ups!

:pointr: For the table, I used a square of thin plastic, painted it with black and silver acrylic paints to get the marble effect, and varnished it; lastly, I've placed it on top of a silver cardstock base.

That's like arguing that kids can buy cigarette looking gum from ice cream trucks. Your art is nice I'm just opposed to smoking.

So you're suggesting that chocolate,gum or any sort of 'make-believe' cigarette would encourage a smoking habit? That is certainly a funny idea; God knows how popular these treats were when I was a child, yet I grew up to be a non-smoker.
I also fail to see how can the simple act of portraying an object into a work of craft promote a bad habit. Following this logic, any time an author pens a thriller book, he's actually promoting murder? Who knew Stephen King was such a sociopath! ;P
Thank you for your comment anyway; its was interesting. :)
