    This is a description of the Mire Man build. The body size is based off a 6.5 to 7 foot male. I am using 3/4 inch PVC and building out the shape with Free Form Air epoxy dough.

    First cut pic pipe into sections for arms, spine, neck, legs etc... I used rough measurements of 7 foot man. Attach PVC together with pic cement. Then use heat gun to bend pic to the correct shape.
