    Thanks to Bob for giving us some GREAT pointers. I think I’ll try the fishing line trick for the shoes. The positioning of the figure on the stand was very educational not only for those starting but to remind those who have been in the business a while also.

    I would have that fishing line rigged back of each shoe, through two screweyes located at each corner of stand back, line then connected to a stick at the terminal points. Wiggle the stick for rocking motion of the legs for a new control movement and continuing laughs here and there.
