Duct Tape Figures





Introduction: Duct Tape Figures

These bendable figures are great for making stop-action movies. These are great for stop-action because they are easy to make, they hold their shape, and with magnets, they can stick to metal.

Step 1: What You Need

To make these figures you will need:

Bendable wire
Duct tape (different colors if you want)
Wire cutters
Something round that is as big as you want the head to be. (I used a candle)
Strong magnets (if you want)

Step 2: Make the Body

Cut out a piece of wire that is double the height that you want your person to be. Bend the middle of the wire around the round thing you found to make the head. You don't need it, but it will make your person look better.
Bend out the legs.

Step 3: Make the Arms

Cut a piece of wire that is as long as two arms. Bend it around the body and flatten it with the wire cutters. (see pic)

Step 4: Tape 'er Up

Now is time to use your duct tape skills. Before you start taping you might need to trim the arms or legs so they are even.

Step 5: Finished!

Now you should add more duct tape to arms and legs, to even them up.
Make another one to have more fun!

    i didn't have wire so i used paper clips. i just straightened out the paper clips and then started to make the people with that. so if you don't have wire, then paper clips work ;) and it's 3 paper clips for each person. 1 for the head, 2nd for the arms and 3rd for the legs.
