old lady puppet

Puppet made for the project "Un Pacco per Mr. Louis" with Fantasmagorie Studio, 2018

For the construction of this puppet I used a ball and socket armature.

The padding was made with foam and medical tape and the clothes are just old textiles, cut and glued together from the inside so that the glue is not visible.

For the head I used aluminium foil covered with glue gun and medical tape, and dyed latex for the skin. I used some aluminium wire to make the mouth animatable (it opens and closes). 

The eyes are two small beads painted with acrylic.

Details of the face are painted with acrylic. 

The hair is just cotton, glued to the head with small points of glue gun.
