Intro: Wire Skeleton for Dolls
Me and my youngest daughter had the idea of creating a film with the dolls she won, using the technique of stop motion. To this end, we developed a skeleton very easy to be created. This tutorial will focus only on the creation of the metal skeleton. Hope you enjoy.
The first step is to create the story and choose the characters.
Step 1: Materials
- A doll;
- Needle and thread the color of the doll;
- Rigid copper wire (do not know what gauge of wire goes through feeling);
- Soldering tin, solder
Step 2: Creating the Skeleton
On top of the figure, measure the wire pieces to be cut, taking care to place them already in the shape of the doll body. Making the legs, arms and trunk.
Then just solder the parts.
Note: I peeled the wire because I wanted to experiment with water electrolysis. I put salt water in a plastic bottle and sank two wires with bare ends. There, I put in a battery and touched the body of the doll. The visual effect was cool. Bubbles come out of the skeleton. It reminded me of an episode of the X-Men when Wolverine was for the future and saw his skeleton kept in an aquarium.
It is not necessary to strip the wire completely. Simply peel the ends where it will be a soldier. Be careful because the soldering iron heats up very destragar the doll and can get in contact with him.
Step 3: Putting the Skeleton on the Doll
It was enough to pull some points back seam of the doll and a little filler. Then just put the skeleton back to put the stuffing and sew the part descosturada.
The doll was left with a plethora of movements
Step 4: Making the Movie
We had a fight scene where the coyote (my favorite) wins. Hence forward, the imagination is the limit.
I hope you enjoyed. Comments are always welcome.
