Howl Sculpt: super sculpey. So I decided to use the toaster oven to bake this sculpey howl, and somehow managed to set it to toast as well, so it came out a little...hmm, burnt, you could say. That's okay, though. It's just a sketch, and it gave me some neat finish ideas. I especially like its tail.
Colour Cross Puppet: cotton fabric, thread, beads, bells marker. I think this is going somewhere interesting. Though it has no head, and only sort of fits my hand, as I didn't really measure it. It could almost go in the goofy/creepy hand collection, though the creepy hand that fits this puppet would be hidden. I say it still counts!
Paper Puppet Practice: pen on paper, twist ties. I want his hand and feet to be able to hang on to something, it is a bit challenging.
Pink Spotty Deer-like Creature: paper, masking tape, marker, pen. After I made this little fellow, he looked a little creepy with his all black eyes, so to bring the scale back towards the friendly side of things I stuck on some tiny googly eyes with some sparkle glue. Instant friend!
Little Banana Tree for the Howl: newspaper, masking tape, marker, pen.
Okay. I know those bananas are ridiculous and look like juggling pins, but if they are good enough for the Howl, they are good enough for all...
Horse? Owl? Howl!: newspaper, masking tape, pen, marker. This Howl will need some friends in the future, I think. He has no ears, maybe he needs some? Or they are just hidden in his fringe...
Owl Puppet Prototype: newspaper, tissue paper, pipe cleaner, masking tape, marker, old paintbrush. I like to make rough prototypes of puppet ideas, and consider them three dimensional sketches. This owl's head can move up and down and twist about. On the finished puppet, the tissue paper feathers would be fabric, hopefully with as much personality. I really like the squared edge of them.
