I gave this guy a little potbelly and a melancholy stare. I’m excited about his fur because it was originally straight when I purchased it but I found a way to make it shaggy (new blog coming soon on that). I can control how shaggy the fur is, which gives me more control over my designs.
He’s a rod puppet and is being given to a friend of mine’s grandchild. I am looking forward to hearing if they will enjoy him as much as I enjoyed making him. I am thinking I will need to make another one of this guy but a little different. Change his eye color to a lighter orange with a darker nose and I want to make the next one a hand and glove puppet.
