Artists learned how to build a clay armature that will support their troll.  Using clay building techniques artists added arms, ears, carved mouthes and eyes.

Next we painted the skin, facial details and stands for our Boxtrolls.

Boxtrolls were given a glossy sheen before being measured for their boxes.  Box labels were made for each box giving each troll their personality and name.
