Using Spurt's Sludge as inspiration, I am making my own Sludge. I have altered the transformation scheme that Spurt used by splitting the head and allowing it to form wings (capturing the winged look of a G1 Sludge). The robot head has been dyed black, with the face painted silver. 3/28/09: I've been experimenting with dyeing with RIT dye some more. I gave the chest a bath in black dye, giving it a deeper red. This should set Sludge apart from Ani-Snarl. I am going to do the real Snarl using a fully black chest (Ani-Snarl is really my Slag). Also, note what a short bath in black does for the Cheetoh weapon! Dyeing is done in a deep fryer set to 160. 3/30/09: Final update for now. Added 5th picture, showing revised chest with logo, plus red trim on shoulders and knees has been painted gold.
