Hot off the press...

Click here to order your copy today! My copy of Puppet Planet has finally arrived! If you like Puppet Mania you'll love this book. John has added some nice features to this book, like "Insider's Guides" to tools, materials and techniques.

With 12 new puppets John provides us with come unique new characters. My favorite is the Stuffed Strongman, a soft sculptured Bunaku style puppet.

John also adds a "field guide" to each of the puppets, suggesting ways to perform them. Another favorite is the Monkey Mitten. This is a hand puppet with a latex face and hands. He shows a pretty simple way to make a pretty effective latex puppet. With each puppet John also shows us other example puppets he has made using the same technique.

Thank you John, for another great puppet building resource. Click on the image to order your copy.

Post vacation blues...

I am back home and back to work. Vacations never last long enough. I am spending the week paying catch up at work. At home I need to setup my puppet building space. I hope to do that over the coming weekend. Once that is setup I'll start posting more puppet building entries. I have a request to show more on how I get the foam in the fleece hands. I'll get something posted ASAP.
