Spaceman Spiff: armature

Now, start by creating the armature for Spiff. Take a cocktail-stick, break it in two and use one of the halves. Take some length of iron wire. Use the same steps as shown in the course to create the armature. The only difference is the size of the legs. They should be about a half times smaller than normal human legs.

Cover the wire with tinfoil.

Use a crammed up ball of tinfoil to create the head. Make it slightly smaller than the size you want the head to have, because there will be a layer of clay on it too.
