Adam Taylor commented on Leigh Rayner's blog post looking for a good home or homes for old armature puppets
"Sounds amazing!  I'd be very interested in a few armatures/puppets.  I'm up in Portland, OR so I hope that's alright.  There are tons of animators - both professional and students - up here that would love to see and…"

Adam Taylor replied to Jacob Lee's discussion Newplast clay not sticking to fabric tape

Adam Taylor replied to Jacob Lee's discussion Newplast clay not sticking to fabric tape
"I just found a nice new clay that has been really fun to animate with.  It is called "JOVI plastilina".  It has some similarities to puppet putty in that the color doesn't go all over your hands, it is lightweight, and it…"
