Katie here. I’ve always worked with clay but recently have ventured into making soft body creations with clay faces/hands-paws/feet-paws. I’ve only used wire armatures inside them. I came across Teddy-Talk researching cotter pins. Where would the best place be to ask questions about cotter pins in the clay pieces, the stringing method I saw mentioned, and so on? And also the best way to make body patterns?
Thanks and hello again,
I know this is a little late, but are you thinking about using cotter pins in the hands and feet to join them to the bear body? The only method I can say actually works for sure is e600 glue to glue into the wrist and ankles.
The library is a great place to check though! There seems to be a post about EVERYTHING under the sun in there!
