3 or 4 years ago my wife's sister gave us a antique hi chair that she thought we could use in our Halloween display . It would have been great as a prop but I decided it was too nice and had too much potential . I decided to strip it down and refinish it so that we could give it to whichever of our 2 nephews had a baby first .

I forgot to take a pic before I stripped it down but this is what it looked like after 3 or 4 coats of old paint was removed :

I also completely disassembled it and re glued all the joints to make it nice and solid .

Here it is after being refinished :

It has a old school removable porcelain tray .

Here it is with seat cushions Julie made for it :

We finally gave it to the winners last weekend What a Face

Okay , it's a little late but I didn't get the inspiration to start it until a couple days before Christmas  nanny

The question is …

I added the hat , boots and modified his bandolier strap and pouch all with milliput . I also bent the arm so he can hold a accessory but haven't made my mind up yet on what the accessory will be - the leading contender in my warped brain is a Combcaster What a Face

That's fantastic.  I think a Combcaster would be an awesome accessory. clapping

I love the waffle patterns you incorporated into the putty. cheers

The eyes were the only part I didn't paint - I just panted right up to them and left the slight brown outline Very Happy

rofl well then you picked one with good paint lol it looked like you painted the outlines on the eyes to me.

Nice work, painting around them surely requires just about the same level of precision. rofl
