I am working on the puppet for my new film. So far I just have the armature with the head and hands (which are both removable). The armature is cabled aluminum wire, with epoxy putty and square brass stock. The head and hands are latex buildup, the head has a movable jaw as well as movement in the brow with replacement eyelids. The beard is fake hair glued on and lightly colored with some paint. The face and the beard aren't quite finished yet, just some small adjustments to clean it up a bit better. As I make progress I will continue to post images, also if anyone has any thoughts or tips, that is welcome too.
