Intro: Making a Plaster Mould for a Puppet Head
This video shows how to make a mould that can be used to make a detailed puppet head from papier mache.
The technique starts with a hand-modelled plasticine original head, from which a 2-part mould is created. This can be lined with papier mache to create moudlinds that can recreate the original shape of the head in lightweight papier mache.
