Follow Kim Baerg’s (from Joy Filled Puppets) as she creates a monster hand puppet! Kim will be posting daily on her process and demonstrating some techniques she has developed throughout her years of building. Check it out! CLICK HERE!
Here is a Mini Lesson (which turned into a full length video) 🙂 it was only suppose to be a quick “how to” and not part of the series. In this episode I deconstruct a puppet, this will shed light on the construction process.
In the next couple of weeks we here at Puppeteers Unite present a new video series “How to Build a Puppet”. We are going to use the Roly Puppet Pattern found at Project Puppet and build a Monster puppet. This beginners course is totally free and will walk you through the stages of building a puppet from beginning to end.
When I first started on the net a couple of years ago, to find information on eye mechs in puppetry- I was very dissappointed. It was very hard to come by.Â OneÂ mechanism that is very simple to construct isÂ the one posted by Puppet Planet.Â
On the Muppet Central Forum,Â the memberÂ who goes by JDAmato posted his version of a blinking eye mechanism– it looks a little more complicated. Great work JD, hope to see a working model on video soon.
