Made by Ana Cláudia Marques de Castro
It was pretty delightful creating this nice guy for my mother to use as Xmas decoration.
I used two Styrofoam balls (2-3 inches and 4 inches) for the body (paste: toilet paper plus good old PVC glue), placed with masking tape on a wooden board of 5 x 6,5 inches; for the top hat, an old ashtray (repainted).
Yet the “spots” for his smile were made with black card paper and a paper puncher, and I used buttons for the eyes and the belly.
I hope heartily to resume this technique still this year!
