Had a chance to work on the new armature and some hands this evening.
Here's a problem I'm running into with the silicone. When the hands come out of the molds, the wires for the fingers are often times, either too close to the surface or partially exposed. You can see on this one the pinkie wire is exposed at the tip and the thumb wire's completely torn out.
I've been patching these up with super glue and more silicon, but I'm wondering if there's a trick I'm missing. After all a lot of guys will cast full puppets with an entire armature inside. How do they do it and keep the armature centered? (Any thoughts Mike???)
See you next time
