If I could make things...

Bouloum man chair by Olivier Mourgue

I want this in 1/12 scale for my MH1. I tried to make it out of red felt. Uh..
can't get the perspective right. I may need help... C


  1. Hi Honey,
    this should be pretty easy to make. I'm thinking you just need to find the 'male' image shape from a bathroom sign

    Print it to size and transfer the shape onto a piece of aluminium. Cut it out with scissors, cover it with your preferred fabric and bend it to shape. That's how I made my leather has metal in the middle to keep the curves

  2. Hmmm.. Pepper has it right. You need wire or a flexible metal in the middle. I keep picturing Gumby being made into a chair. Maybe you could trim and bend a flexible Gumby and then cover him. I wonder what you could make out of Pokey.

  3. OMG You make it sound so easy! C

  4. Hi C,
    I've finished your chair and posted it on flickr for you to have a look-see. I'll get it in the mail as soon as I can
