PINE WOOD DERBY CARS

Making a Pine Wood Derby Car………………………hmmmmm, isn’t that for the Boy Scouts?? I remember my oldest making a couple of them and competing with them. That track was amazing!!! How fast did those little cars go………..WOW!!!! Now……….that was almost 12 years ago, yea, at least!!! With dad’s help, Tim had fun and did quite well competing!

Fast forward to today…………………………when asked who wanted to accept the challenge to make a mixed media car……………..guess who raised her hand??? YUP, that would be me!!! I love to explore the world of mixed media……even though I am still learning! What a way to combine the two………..mixed media and a Pine wood Derby Car. All the cars needed to start out  alike…………but, that is where the likeness stopped! After lots of thought, I decided I wanted to construct a pullin’ tractor…………….a mixed media pullin’ tractor!

Hubby cut both ends off to make the main part of the body with his chop saw. A first for me was forming the modeling clay to make fenders, seat and weights. While the clay was drying, The main part of the body was rotated so I could use the largest part as the hood of the tractor. I took to whittling down and rounding the hood. My paint job came out rough as I mixed together green gliitter and the Tim Holtz forest mass paint. Different but I like how it came out! I used a few pieces that came in the derby car kit……………the engine block, screws and muffler pipes. I altered these pieces by rusting them. I added the bling at the end to glitz it up, some! Of course, I needed to have a driver…………………the lambie fit the bill!!!

Here is my PULLIN’ TRACTOR:
