I made only the puppets and the statue - not the videos. 

The whole EF18 Pawpet Show (unofficial recording):

Hey Tioh,

It was great meeting you and the other Eurofurence puppeteers at Rainfurrest!  Your Fox puppet is awesome, great work!

The pleasure is all mine. Unfortunately I forgot to make a video of your Tiger puppet.

My fox puppet enjoyed his vacation:

Well done. They read really good from a distance.  I like the characters voices.  Nice work! Love the puppets.

The detail is amazing, truly beautiful, What are the teeth made of? They almost look like real needle sharp fox teeth!! Would have loved to have had your puppets for our video...

This is so the Fox we're lookin' for!!  wave

The teeth made using polycaprolactone (I bought it from http://www.plaast.de/) - a polyester with a low melting point of around 63°C. You can mould it like putty. I made each tooth separately. The easiest way to work with the material is to stick it on a smooth metal pin - this way you do not have to hold it in your hands till it cooled down. You can always reheat it if you want to change something later. I use a heat-gun.

Wow polycaprolatone is bio degradable. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polycaprolactone If folks are looking for the product in the US you might want to search out Thermoplastic wich I believe is the trademark name of it here in the states.

I'm not so sure wether the brands that I use are bio degradable or not. I use the material for 5 years now - even the test-pice that lies on my window has not degraded and that's been in the sun for years.

Other brands for the plastic:
  • Hand Moldable Plastic
  • Mold-Your-Own Grips
  • InstaMorph
  • Shapelock
  • Polymorph

I haven't tried those - they should work like Plaast.

There is also Friendly Plastic, but I've seen several projects where it crumbled after one year.

I've used Friendly Plastic and have not had a problem with it crumbling but is is very sensitive to heat. Even leaving a piece setting in the sun can misshape it if you have formed it into a shape.  Make sure anything made with it is stored in a cool place.

This is great, those teeth look excellent! I have never done anything with these kinds of materials. Sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Will have to think of an excuse to try some of these out!

Cool Thing.
I ordered Plaast on Monday and I get it Today.
It is really great to work with.
Before I allways used Fimo for Teeth, Nails an so on,
but that Material is so much better to work with.
Maybe I`ll try to use it on my new Puppet I`m working
right now.
Thanks Thio for your Tip!^^
