Once the head was fully cured, I drilled a hole into the badger’s body, and fitted the head armature’s wire into it, and bent it around until I was happy with the position.

With the head in place, I test-fitted the pipe, which turned out to be way too long to fit between his hand and his mouth… so I made a shorter one.

Of course, a little pipe doesn’t take much putty, and I’d mixed up far too much. So rather than let it go to waste, I used it to start on the badger’s staff. I rolled the putty into a thin sausage, pressed it onto the staff armature wire with my fingers, smoothed it with he Clay Shaper, then used the Wax 5 to cut in lines for the wood grain. I only had enough putty mixed to get about halfway down, but that was OK – if I’d done the whole thing, it would have made sculpting the feet harder.
