This shows the steps to get a papier mache puppet head from a blank shape to the finished painted facial features.
This video shows the process speeded up, and the steps explain what was done to paint the puppet
Step 2: Apply a base coat
Step 3: Apply a colour base coat (optional)
A coloured base coat can be applied instead, in this case the base colour for the puppets skin is a light neutral pink. This is a mix of white emulsion, with yellow oche, burnt sienna and alazarin crimson acrylic paint mixed in.
Step 4: Building up richer skin tones over the base coat
Step 5: Applying further detail
Step 7: Applying varnish
Step 8: Finished puppet
And this is what it looks like completed with costume... Hope it is of use
