Start with 4 wood sticks and use metal wire together with glue gun to secure the sticks together.
Use a  cotton wool ball for the head

Paint the head white and draw a face. Glue hair on.

Measurements for shirt and pants. Used Claudine Hellmuth multi matte on the clothing to make them more easy to form.

Used a plastic flower pot and put some stones inside to make it study. If you have a clay pot that would be perfect.
