This is Henny Penny from the Playtime Toy Plans. It’s a free download and a good way to see how the Image Art and see how the Mod Podge works. It worked well enough for me to do the P-38 Lighting project. You will notice that the plugs that attach the pull cords are a little long but if I do another one I will correct that little problem.

This was a fun build. I just used scrap ¾” pine and made my own wheels and used an old boot lace for the pull cord.

Thanks for lookin’

Bill, I'm so excited to see this! You've done a wonderful job and it really looks awesome! If you have a larger photo please post it. The boot lace looks great for the pull cord. I really like the color. I don't mind that the plugs stick out. It looks very natural.

This is probably a silly question, but.

At what stage did you drill the holes for the pull cords? I am assuming this was prior to cutting out the shapes?

If painting mdf around edges, is this done prior to applying images and does the overlap of paint affect the image sticking down?

Yes, I drilled the holes for the pull cords before cutting out the shapes. I need to shorten the plugs, tho.

I don't know about the overlap of the paint. I used 3/4" pine and put on a layer of Danish oil, let it dry and then put on the images and it worked very well.
