Hi,

What you can do is make the head seperate and then attach to the body.

Start out with a really good mashed up piece of rkt and roll it into a a semi log and begin to mold it into a nice oval like shape. With shortening ong yr hand begin to pull/smooth one end of rkt outward. When you get it to the length you like then make a small slit for where the mouth will be. At the same end take a paintbrush (small) using the end of it and make the indents for the nostril. Then shape the other end of it to look like the back of the giraffe's head. Work from there to make it look like what you want. then cover and add all of yr details to enhance.

I hope I explained it well enough to help you. I see it in my head but hard to put in writing :-/

Yr very welcome.

By the way, I think Iforgot to mention to be sure and put a skewer or toothpick in the body or the head after you make it. That way you have something sturdy to attach it to the body with. Also, I use tylose glue to attach my figures. Good Luck icon_smile.gif
