stop motion puppet part 2

When the latex dries, add more detail.

That is the neck seam. I stuffed some more cotton in the head.

Build up all the areas at once so you have one part drying while you work on another.

It is starting to look like a puppet now.

I use a rubber tipped clay sculpting tool to apply the latex. When dry, the latex peels right off. I use mask latex.

I add two-part epoxy putty (Green Stuff) for the hands, so there is something solid there.

You can add really fine detail by dabbing with a toothpick.

Notice the tiny spikes on the skin. Just dab and lift.

Those tiny spikes are only the size of a pencil lead or smaller.

Add some toes made from cotton and latex. Build them up to the desired shape and thickness.

You can pre form these first on the side and then glue them on later like Richard does. Twist the cotton in your fingers, dip in latex, let dry, then apply later.

We will let all of this dry, and then start again later.

Go ahead, make a puppet, have some fun.
