What was your inspiration?
I was vacationing in Ecuador and saw Fofuchas for the first time used as party favors. I love them and had to learn to make them myself.
What are you most proud of?
It is not an easy material to manipulate becasue of its fragility but once you get the hang of how much to pull then its much easier.
I love the way the skin colored foam takes on shapes. I especially love the curved little hands! The original fofuchas have flat hands and I was able to use the foams properties in my favor to create, what I feel is a more life-like curve.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be careful with the glue and iron. It is very easy to get burned while doing these dolls!
Buy extra material. As easy as it is to get yourself burned, burning and ripping material is just as easy.
