Used 2-layers of plain kraft chipboard painted to look like leather for Rana's Shoohooves. The ties were made from kraft paper wrapped wire and pineapple twine painted to match. Used three layers of fender washers glued between the card on each foot to reinforce the sandals from the constant tie down use they will hopefully be walking through. The little animal nose shape was glued on top to adapt the look of the (Fabulously Halflandian!!!) real sandals on the real hooved animal in rural China (seen upper left of second photo in this post).
