What materials did you use? Foam sheets, skewers, hot glue, styrofoam spheres and circle

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.

Hi, I have a question on the adhesive, I hope that you could help me out. I've used low temp hot glue gun to adhere the craft foam to the Styrofoam balls, but it's not sticking together. Any idea on what I may be doing wrong? Thanks for any advise.

From past experience, if I put too muchglue it gets gooey and it takes long to dry. Try adding just a line of glue at a time. Let me know how it goes :)
