Step 1: Making the base of the ears

So you just place the rods where there supposed to go after measured then hot glue the layers together and sand down the sides lightly. After, cover the ears with bondo and yes it will dissolve the base a little but it DOES work. Just take your time and be careful.

Warning: wear gloves and respiration mask for your health.
 
LEARNING OBJECTIVE: learn how to use bondo,paint,sand,and scale a project.

Step 2: Starting the head

For the head i used a 13" hamster ball. When you mark the head i recommend a dry erase marker for mistakes. With this you just take your time and be patient. For the top lip i taped the string to the top corners of the mouth and pulled the string down for a perfect curved mouth. After sealing the breathing holes with electrical tape you start cutting out the holes for the eyes and ears. Then start covering the head with bondo.

Step 3: Sanding

In this step you just sand down the bondo the best you can. Lucky for me my dad's a professional.

Step 4: Mixing and Adding Primer

With this my dad did most of the chemicals so i cant say much but after letting the primer dry you wet sand the head and ears. 

Step 5: Painting-Final

Again my dad did the chemicals but after painting you let the head dry, and drill out the holes for the ears and eyes.

Step 6: Have Fun!

Great idea using the body filler.

Thank you (:
Not bad. I would suggest spending a few extra bucks to get a 14in globe from a home improvement store (like $25) then using either bondo or rondo(50% resin 50% bondo) on the inside to strengthen the plastic. You wouldn't have to sand anything which makes things much easier, and everything would be perfectly round.
