Hi there! This is Tiger. Look! He's waving at you. He might eat yo though, one tiny bite at a time.
He's a fingerpuppet, resting on two fingers. The jaw is operated by a cord that goes around the thumb.
You like sculpting? Good, then you can make a Tiger yourself. Or any other creature.
Step 1: To Start With
Needless to say, but I'll say it anyway: The better your sculptingskills, the better the result.
You'll need the following:
- Different colours of clay, the kind you bake in the oven. (I use FIMO) Also, you'll need an oven.
- A marker
- Aluminium Foil
- A thick needle
for the body:
- a Crochetneedle ( size 0,3)
Begin by covering the tip of a marker with foil.
You can use something else, as long as it's about the same size as your finger.
Work the clay around this model and shape it roughly.
Better not add to much detail at this point!
