The Troll Project Part 3 - The Body (this page)

 


Assembling the troll body.

This troll will have a bendable body with wire and fiberfill.

You need to cut two pieces of wire, one 22 inch (55cm) piece for the body, and one 12 inch (30cm) piece for the arms.

Materials for making the body

  • Wire
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Wire cutter
  • Super glue
  • Fiberfill
  • Thread

BODY

 


STEP ONE:
Use the longest wire for the body.

Bend it in half, and use your pliers to make the twist on top. This is where the head will be glued on.


STEP TWO:
Use the smallest wire for the arms.

Bend the wire of the body/leg part to each side. Lay the arm piece of wire behind.


STEP THREE:
Start twining it around so it is nicely attached.


STEP FOUR:
Bend the wire for the body and legs downwards.


STEP FIVE:
Start twining it around.


STEP SIX:
Use fiberfill and attach it to the body with thread. Make sure you tighten the thread, so the body is stable. Put on more layers of fiberfill if you want it to be fatter.


STEP SEVEN:
Continue covering both arms and legs.


STEP EIGHT:
Make sure that the wires are the right length for all his parts. You have to cut them a bit to make them fit. It is better to make the wire too long, then cut off some wire, than having the wire too short!!

Glue his head, hands and feet to the wire, using superglue.


"Ahh, now I am done. I have clothing and a tail attached to my butt, and I am ready to make a pretty girl my wife.. Anybody interested? (I am rich!!)"
