I make these lil dudes for stopmotion animating. (very useful)
You could make them for your kids or grandkids as little dress up dolls or things kids like to play with.
Its a heck of a lot cheaper than buying Barbies every so often.
Or... you could use them for what they actually are, you know, get them all dressed up, then draw them.. i suppose it could help teach shadows in clothing and how clothes fit on the body.
NO MATTER WHAT!!!
Everything is up to you.
The wooden Art Manequins are about $6 at Wal-Mart. You can get them at Michaels too, or most other craft stores.
Like i said... beats the $30 Barbie dolls if you're planning on having your granddaughter over or trying to entertain your own.
Step 1: Materials
1 wooden art manequin.
All Purpose Tacky glue
Metal fastening loops
Step 2: Remove the stand
We can't have that.
What youre going to wanna do is grab it by the metal rod, not by the base, and pull. If it doesnt move at all try wiggling it a bit and eventually it should slip out of the manequins rear end.
Now your manequin is all free spirited and ready to venture the world.
Note: pulling by the base is bad because you could end up pulling the rod out of the base, then it would get stuck in the manequin and the base would be all wobbly later on.
