This quick session was to explain the process of creating a puppet for animation purposes.
Creating every single piece from scratch/drawing to a puppet’s armature. The first step is to scale the character. As a rule it is best if the size of the draft/drawing would be no bigger than A4 but also to try to overtake the space. The scale of the real life puppet is followed by drawing’s size which makes it easier to contain the proportions.
the thicker wire you use, the harder and higher tension appears when trying to bent it
thinner wire determines the weight
aluminium wire + box wood + styrofoam are best materials to use
A4 size paper for sketch
not to swirl a hole in the box but better to push it through because it could ruin the box wood
use hot glue to attach, plus it works great to build up some mass around the wires
liquid latex + acrylic are best for painting the puppet
