1. Start by heating the MYNT3D pen to 210 degrees C, for ABS filament.

2. Trace the outline and fill in the llama body and ears template with purple filament.

NOTE: Make 6 copies of the ear templates, 2 for the ears and 4 for the tail. 

3. Fill in the eyeballs with white filament. 

4. Fill in the head straps, eye outlines and center of eyes with black filament.

5. To assemble the llama character, roll a small ball of sticky tack (about 1/3 the width of the body bottom) and place between the body sides in the head area.

6. Attach the bottom of the body, connecting the 2 side body pieces. Note: The bottom will be wider than the head.

7. With purple filament, use your 3D pen to draw back and forth between the body sides. Remove sticky tack.

8. Attach the ears to the top of the head.

9. Starting just below the larger black head strap, use purple filament to draw small loops in horizontal rows along the llama's neck.

10. Switch to sky blue filament and draw a couple loopy lines at the neckline.

11. Switch to fluo blue filament and draw loopy lines below the sky blue area. Extend the looping technique over the llama's back. 

12. Alternate between purple*, pink, sky blue and fluo blue* until the remainder of the llama body is covered in loops.

*TIP: When you have fluo blue in your pen, draw and attach the llama legs. When purple is loaded, attach the tail pieces.

13. Load black filament into your pen. Connect the head straps over the width of the llama.

14. Add the black hooves to the legs.

15. Load ABS wood brown filament into your 3D pen and trace the outline of the saddle bags and the center arrow.

16. Switch to sand filament to fill in the saddle bags interior.

17. Add sand colored clamps near the top, as shown on the template. 

18. Draw over the top of the llama in brown filament, bridging the two saddle bags.

19. Load aluminum filament into your pen. Draw on a lock at the bottom of each saddle bag.

20. Add a dab of aluminum where the head straps meet on either side of the llama head.

21. Draw short lines of aluminum on either side and in between the sand-colored clamps.

22. To make the handle on top of the saddle area, draw a dab of aluminum filament about 1/2" apart. Place the tip of a pencil between the dabs then draw back and forth from one side to the other, arching over the pencil.
