This is my armature on my armature plan. I used electrical switch part welled on to a peace of rectangular metal, this hold in the wire in place. For the twisted wire, I use 2mm wire and copper.
unfortunately one of the legs of the electrical switch part had broken, so I tried solder iron but this did not work.
so I just use epoxy glue and milliput to hold it in place.
for the arm I covered then in tights, to get that skin colour, i thought this came out very well as it looks like his has wrinkles in the skin, which I like and he is meant to be and old stretchy super hero.
I covered the balsa wood head with skin coloured plasticine, I made the nose a different colour, I want it to stand out as it is one of his main features.
I added plasticine pupils, I didn't like this as it made the plastic dirty and black smudges.
I knitted his long red cape.
