Game of Gnomes: Political leaders immortalised as gnomes help gardeners decide who to vote for.
General Election Gnomes
The nation’s favourite DIY chain B&Q wanted to launch their ‘Gnomifesto’ in style, and in the process find out which political parties their customers were being persuaded by - so they tasked us with creating these adorable little effigies to help find out. Our talented sculptors set to work cultivating our favourite outdoor home accessory – the garden gnome, and quickly started seeing the funny side. Once we had printed out all of our photo reference for the sculpts our office looked like a campaign bus!
Each likeness was carved from a piece of polymer clay and painted in loving detail by our team of equally diminutive craftspeople. Originally produced as a collection of just the main party leaders; David Cameron (Conservative), Ed Miliband (Labour), Nigel Farage (UKIP), Nick Clegg (Lib Dem) and Nicola Sturgeon (SNP), public outrage lead to the late inclusion of Leanne Wood (Plaid Cymru) and Natalie Bennett (Green Party).
