Lady Fromage Rod Puppet, Part 15
The rod used to turn the puppet's head will be made from piano wire. Piano wire is a great replacement for coat hanger wire (a common puppet building material with beginning puppeteers), because it is hardened steal and extremely strong. This is the same wire that I use for puppet arm rods, although for the rod puppet, I’m using a ticker gauge.
Measure a couple of inches down from one end of the wire, and make a mark. Using a c-clamp and pliers carefully make a 90 degree bend at the mark.
