Puppet Eyes: Practice Golf Balls
Puppeteer and puppet builder Nick Barone is brilliant at using materials in unusual ways. He developed the technique of making puppet eyes from practice golf balls. The balls are yellow and made from a dense foam, and they are available at Target and most sports stores. Using these for puppet eyes is easy. Simply cut them in half (or use them whole), and paint or draw on your eye balls. Here is a gallery of Nick's puppets - the big yellow eyes are made from practice golf balls. The Tyrannosaurus's Rex from Swazzle's puppet show, Harry and the Tyrannosaurs Rex also has eyes made from practice golf balls.
