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:
Duct tape (different colors if you want)
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!
