Geoffry - Tabletop Puppet

Rick here, first time posting to the blog. And as you can see, first post to the blog in quite awhile. Life seems to take us down different roads than what we expect.

Anyway, here is Geoffry. He is a tabletop puppet that I have been working on for a month or two(my time is usually limited). He has turned out better than I expected. And with anything like this, I learned some things that I will change next time around.

Special thanks goes to my wife Martha for helping me out in the painting department and with some design/sculpting. She is a full time artist and I tend to take her advice when she gives it in areas like this. :) Oh and thanks to her for Geoffry's feet! She wants to make him a pair of Teva's!

Here are some images of the different stages of building. This was the first time I have used Sculpey clay to this extent. It was fun to work with but my skills sculpting need some work!

Next is to get him some clothing and some hair! I am also working on a drum for him to play. Stay tuned! Will post more soon!

  1. This is really nice. Is the sculpey already backed and everything?How did the eyes work out? They look glass.

  2. Yes in the photos it is baked. The eyes are just painted on (thanks to my wife). Thanks for the comment!
