Now that the grip is finished it's time for me to begin work on the puppet's muzzle. I'll start with the bottom jaw.
1) Draw the pattern on butcher paper. This particular shape is the same as the pallet, but just a little larger.
2) Trace the pattern on to a sheet of half inch foam.
3) Use a sharp exacto knife to cut the foam.
4) With a scrap of foam dab Barge Cement onto the edges that will be glued to the pallet.
