Boy and Girl Marionette Puppets

Introduction: Boy and Girl Marionette Puppets

These puppets were made by creating a clay head then casting a plaster mold. Wood dough was pressed into the mold, a classic puppetry technique. Then the heads were sanded and painted. Bodies, hands and feet are pine. Their hair is funny fur for the boy and yarn for the girl.

    We didn't take pictures during the construction unfortunately. A great book that goes into fantastic detail is Introducing Puppetry by Peter Fraser published 1968.
