Hands with Magnetic Wrist Joints.
Flatten the tube with long nose pliers and, for good measure, carefully pinch it a few times with wire cutter.
Carefully, don’t cut them off. Set the hand on a shorted ball screw. Pinch with pliers to tighten the tube around the screw.
Here are the parts that make the magnetic wrist joint, from top to bottom:
round brass tube 5/32″ (hand module)
brass connector M2x10 mm
8 mm countersunk magnet
Cold Weld epoxy is used to secure hand module, brass connector and ring magnet.
The sausage fingers should be the same width as on the reference photo.
Bend fingers (break clay).
Paint fingers with Translucent Liquid Sculpey
Put clay on the palm and sculpt the hands with a hook micro tool, cat tongue brush, fine point tip rubber tool.
Finger ring palette is helpful to keep the clay and liquid clay close to the sculpting area.
Finish, bake and paint with Genesis paints, at the same time you paint the face. For reference use your own hands.
