Making our Puppets

Having decided we rather liked the princess puppet, we thought it would be good to make some other archetypal fairytale characters. Having lots of fun making newspaper forms and applying newspaper and paste, and finishing them off with a layer of gumstrip.

We then coated them in a layer of emulsion.

Before applying their unique personalities.

Jess made a wig out of wool for the fairy, by herringbone braiding a strip of wool, and then tying individual strands down the sides of it. So when it was glued in place you cannot see the machanics of it.
