This guy measures 14-1/2" tall and is dusted with just a bit of Extra Fine glitter. I give you the sources for supplies used and detailed instructions and pictures. His wood base is just a 1x4 cut to size. You can also use wood plaques from Michael's Craft store. I've seen a nice thick 5" round unfinished wood piece for only .99!! And NO special tools needed except a screwdriver. Make his shirt "tucked" or "untucked"
