Step 6: Dry Bones' Head - Part 2; Decorating Controls

Now we are going to make Dry Bones look like Dry Bones.
+The head should be nice and solid now that it has been baked. Fill in the eye sockets and nostrils with black clay. *pic 1, pic 2
+Add two small yellow dots to the eyes for pupils. *pic 3
+If you want to smooth over any mistakes on Dry Bones, add white clay and smooth it in.
Decorating the Controls: Optional, but awesome.
+Cut thin strips from a sheet of thin orange clay.Add strips and small dots in a square shape to outer rim of yellow controls.*pic 4, pic 5
+Roll a thin white rope, shape into a question mark and place in center of orange square. Repeat all the way around. *pic 6, pic 7

Bake these two pieces again! (still according to the manufacturer's instructions)
Great work on this. It gives me some ideas for creating a Marionette of my own.
This is adorable. Great photos, too!
Great out of the box idea!!
Thanks so much! It was a lot of fun to do.
So I've been playing around with your instructable. Dry bones was my first marionette, but I've now made several others. I am doing this with kids this summer, I'll show you pictures when they finish. Thanks for such a great 'able!
Ahh! It's brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing!
Absolutely! I'm having so much fun with these, and it's all your fault! :) I just might have to make myself a Mario as well! :) I will keep you posted and I will show you what the kids came up with! Thanks again for such an amazing 'able!
I'm going to make this as well as do it as a project with some kids. I might have to mod it for them, I'll post pic when I finish. This is really very cool, nice nice job!
Great! I love it when people make projects their own - I certainly tailor everybody else's projects to my needs! I await pictures.
Do we get to meet Dry Bones?
This is awesome. You've got my vote.
Thank you so much!
Very nice! You've got my one of my votes! :)
I appreciate it very much!
You should do a video of Dry Bones dancing and embed it! That would be AWESOME! :D
This is so cool! Well done! Instructions are well laid out.
Thanks so much!
