B.A.R.K. Production Journal: Puppet Hands, Step 13

hands18

1) Use your own arm as a guide to figure out the orientation of the puppet's elbows and wrists.

2) Pin the hands in place.

3) Using a sturdy needle and strong thread, sew the hands to the arms. The hand material will be difficult to sew through because of the glue, so stitch carefully.

Have you been using reticulated foam on this project, or type of foam, or a mix? Which do you use the most of?

Ken,

I use different foams for different things. The head is made from half inch polyurethane foam. The body is made from a slightly more rigid foam, and inside of the mouth is made from dyed reticulated foam. I also use rigid closed cell on occasion. I probably use the every day variety of half inch polyurethane the most.
