First, Clay Attraction creates the red wagon rocket with twine-tailored brooms and coffee-aged surfaces. Then she makes Bing Bong, Riley’s mostly-cotton candy imaginary friend, with clay and brightly colored wool.
His part cat, part elephant, part dolphin body shape is formed with an aluminum foil ball inside the clay. Wrapped wool is tucked under his clay jacket. His stripey tail is wool glued onto a wire covered in pink clay.
Joy, one of Riley’s emotions, is sculpted from clay with bright blue thread hair.
The textures and painted details on Bing Bong’s fabrics and candy-decorated bag, as well as on Joy’s dress and face, help bring the scene from Pixar’s 2015 animated film to life.
