……………………………………………………………………………………………..

What was your inspiration for this custom toy? I I think it was the cold & wet weather outside that wanted me to make a cute brown coloured kind of  forester caveman with a camera…

Which part of the customizing process did you enjoyed the most?
Glueing the felt on the head, this is the start of seeing the ‘character’ getting some shape.

How and when did you begun customizing?
We always start with a good light sandpaper scrub so the paint will ‘stick’ better.
Then we start the paint work from light to dark (where possible of course). Then we’ve cut all the felt parts for the head and started glueing. cut out the parts for the pants and hand sewed this around the character (some parts are also glued together). At last we glued layers of felt on top of each other, cut out the camera and wooden club and added the details on it.

What keeps you inspired?
All the people we meet on- and offline who make great work!
