Another loop of the stop motion donut puppet I made for Zombie Cat Studios a while back. Tiny donuts by Rachel Gitlevich, animated by Brian Lonano and Tak Masuda.
I made this needle felted stop motion puppet a few years ago for Zombie Cat Studios. I used wire, mesh, and epoxy clay to build the armature, then sewed felt over it to give the loose wool something to felt onto. Tiny donuts by Rachel Gitlevich, animation by Tak Masuda and Brian Lonano.
With swirls born of machines and magic, these dapper darlings inspire sugary mischief wherever they go. The spirit of a Froyo Fella is a dichotomy of crunchy, creamy complexity. Sharper than ice cream, these low fat adventurers brave the sunshine to seek a life outside the froyo shop, wild animals in their own right. The Froyo Fellas are full of wiggles and giggles, but sometimes bite–so watch your fingers.

To make the line work of the sculpture pop, I brush paint into the low points and wipe away the rest. I mix the black acrylic paint with a retarder so I have time to apply and lift the paint before it dries. Art magic!
I’m using a gap filling superglue to attach the sprinkles. The sprinkles are tinted epoxy clay.
I varnished the swirls to prepare for black paint that I’ll brush on/ wipe away from the high points of the sculpture. The black paint will create outlines within the sculpture and make the detail pop. Varnishing helps to fill in small variations in the surface, which will let me wipe away the excess paint more easily.
