First Attempt For Round Head Puppet!!!!  (Read 19446 times)

Ok, guys and gals...you have officially gotten me hooked!  We have started our 2nd build...we are attempting a round head puppet, with a pattern from bashful puppets...here are a few pics of what we have accomplished so far...keep the fingers crossed! Head is being made from 1" Foam, the lining is silk, mouth board will be cardboard, and the seams are being held by Contact Cement.  Time invested so far...about an hour...working on covering now!  Post those soon!

Looking good so far. thumbsup
I have only one question:
Why do you put silk inside the head? Undecided

Because it makes the puppet feel pretty! Smiley  Actually I was kind of wondering the same thing myself.

We were looking at some OLD Videos online (YouTube) and this older lady...can't remember her name, recommended lining the inside to keep sweat out of the foam, and help with preserving the puppet...that and we wanted to try it, and see...no harm, no foul...plus it makes it a little more smoother inside.

I have had people request the head to be lined simply because they did not like the feel of the foam rubbing anywhere on the skin. Great jo! Thanks for sharing.

This will be a Heinz 57 Puppet....The Torso is being made with a rendition of a pattern from Dr. Puppet...here are some pictures of it...it is made from 1/2" foam...seams held together with Contact Cement as well...



Not sure why it came out blue...but it is actually green

The Lady on youtube video is Mrs Babara, and is for protect the foam for sweat.

The puppet is getting great. Well done!

Caleb, what a great looking puppet.  You've done a great job on your first two puppet.  Each one will get even better as you learn more tricks of the trade.  BTW - I personally like the brown shirt on him.  Just my opinion.

Another Song

One of the Skits (That is my personal puppet...Oscar...aka for the skit...Mr. Quimper)

Children's church went great (we had Crawler age through 2nd this morning, about 30 kids)...it was awesome...I forgot to give my camera off to someone, but we did the same show as last night, and I have to say, I think it Went even better today, granted it was their second show!  I will try to get some pics off the video, and will attempt to get it posted somewhere...thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

P's...started work on puppet #3 last night...will keep things updated.
