To find out what a Corky is, see my other Instructable, where I describe everything in depth.
Anyways, here's how to make mini Mario out of a champagne cork.
Step 1: Supplies
Other things you will need:
- White acrylic paint
- UHU all-purpose glue
- Craft knife
- Blue and red felt-tip pens
- Black and brown permanent marker
- Scraps of blue and red fabric
- Cotton wool, or other stuffing material
- Piece of cork
- Black and yellow foam rubber
Step 2: Face
Cut out a small round nose with a craft knife. Keep one side flat so you can glue it on.
To make the trademark Mario-stache, cut it out of some black foam. Leave a gap at the top for the nose.
Use white acrylic paint or white-out for the whites of the eyes. Then, fill in the pupils with a black permanent marker and outline them with a light blue felt-tip pen.
Cut out some foam eyebrows, and glue everything onto the face with UHU glue.
Use a brown permanent marker to add hair and a black permanent marker to add ears. I forgot to do this in the beginning, but try to do it before the clothes.
Step 3: Clothes
Cut out blue, thinner strip for the overalls. Leave a section in the middle slightly wider.
Cut out small trips of blue fabric for the overall straps,
Step 4: Cap
To make the Mario symbol, cut out a small paper circle and draw the "M" with a red felt tip pen.
