Remember Bumble from the Rudolph cartoon?
Well I thought it'd be fun to make a Bumble hunting trophies for my sisters.
I'd probably do it a little differently, were I to do it again, but this is how I created it.
Please feel free to add tips on how you would do a step differently in the comments thanks.
Merry Christmas Erin and Megan
Step 1: Mouth
Draw the shape of the eye and mouth pieces onto your ball.
Then use a sharp knife to cut out the mouth shape.
I wouldn't recommend using a christmas ball like I have a foam ball would have been much easier to work with.
One you have your mouth shape removed, start shaping the inside of the mouth with your wire mesh.
Don't worry about the details, you just need something for your sculpy to stick to.
Step 2: Mouth 2
Once your happy with your wire mesh and have cut away some of the excess it's time to ad your sculpy and start sculpting the in your mouth details.
After you've finished sculpting, carefully remove the mesh and bake until hard.
Add a coat of paint and you'll start to see your Yeti taking shape.
Step 3: Face Prep
Hot glue mouth into place, then cut sculpy template for eyes.
Step 4: Fur
Place mouthpiece in the center of your fun fur.
Glue fur to tops and bottoms of sphere first.
Trim away excess fur as you glue sides.
If anybody has a good way to wrap a sphere in fun fur tutorial, please link it in the comments.
Find the opening in the mouth and make an incision. Carfully cut away fur until mouth is revealed.
One you have a mouthy fur ball, trim away the area that you'd like to use for your eyes.
Step 5: Eyes
Finally sculpt the eye sockets and pupils out of sculpy and bake.
Felt the sockets and hot glue mask to head.
Cut the handles off some plastic soup spoons and glue into sockets.
Glue painted pupils to spoons.
I used an outdoor fence post cap for the plaque and secured it with a long screw and secured it with a plastic wall anchor.
Step 6: Tada
ClanMan made it!
