Once the block was built up large enough, the empty center space received a final hollowing out
and the features were carved. Mickey's lower jaw and black nose were done separately and attached later.
The eyes are constructed from a double layer of mesh used for rug hooking. The mesh is offset to insure
that the eyes look more solid than they are, and since the mesh is not plastic, it can be colored with fabric
markers to simulate the iris of Mickey's eye
Mickey was covered with flesh colored felt attached with 3M 77 spray adhesive. His nose and inner mouth
is covered in black felt, his ears and head in a lightly furred fabric and his toungue is made of craft foam.
Mickey's ears are held on with long pieces of threaded brass extending into the ears and bolted with
wing nuts inside the head.
