1. Making the gents legs

This design is all about creating cute models, but not being too careful regarding proportions so time to have a bit of fun.

In this lesson, Paul rolls out the legs and adds the socks and shoes. It proved a little more challenging than he expected!


NOTE: Paul puts the socks on the wrong side of the bamboo skewer so make sure that you add the socks to the pointed end.
