Here’s the puppet being fitted for a shirt.
I took a tip from Jon of Jon’s Stopmo blog - Link and am using the glue gun for the seams rather than stitching them with thread. I’m really liking the results, things are coming out clean and sharp.
On the last puppet I painted all the fabric with acrylic paint and it made it all quite a bit stiffer. There was less unintentional movement in the clothing while I was animating, but the down side was it got so stiff that it actually restricted the puppets ability to move. For example the arms had I little more ‘bounce’ than they did before they where covered.
So I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet, painting has positives and negatives.
See you next time
