I’m still having fun with the Bendy Bandaging technique and discovered it’s perfect for modelling these long-limbed comical cuties.
It’s great fun making them pose in any number of positions and these are the only component parts you need.
The hat (or hair or cap!) – 4 strips Cup Coil.
The face (with nose or glue a nose on later) – 3 – strips.
Arm and hand – 15 x 6cm long flesh coloured strips bandaged twice. Leave 4cms unbandaged so they can be looped back to form a hand.
The legs are 20 x 7cm long strips, bandaged twice.
Feet – about 4 strips. A Cup Coil with a hole big enough to fit on the leg.
Glue and bandage the legs together for about 2.5cm to create a body. Then glue and bandage body to arms at the shoulders.
And you can quill all kinds of accessories.
So, if you know someone who loves dogs, cake, shopping, sports or, even, quilling, you can make them a personalised Bendy Buddy to play with.
