Title: First time build - replica (suggestions?)
Post by: HawkontheHill on October 01, 2012, 12:15:11 pm
Hey everyone... So I am looking to build a Franklin Delano Bluth replica puppet.
In case you don't know what he looks like, here's a picture.

I saw a few instructional guides for how to build a "round headded" puppet. The shape of the head seems to be a little off, as does the neck... would you suggest i use a step-by-step guides like this one?

Does anyone have other advice? I want it to be 100% accurate. I'll probably use styrofoam glued to the foam to make the cheeks.
