Do you outline a great deal of the book before you illustrate or just let your muse lead you on and see where you end up? Lisa : First I have an idea for a story, and I begin to visualize what the characters could look like.
I start doing character sketches to define facial features, body shapes, how they dress, etc. I do research, too. I start writing down story ideas, kind of a very loose outline if even that with some scenarios.

Sometimes I complete the story now, so I can take a break from it and look at it with fresh eyes later on. Oftentimes, I can get away with a simpler wire armature, but if the figure is a main character which will be posed quite a bit, I opt for a ball-and-socket armature, which is more durable.
I start sculpting the puppet head and hands. Fimo Doll Puppen works really well for me. Now I start making the armatures. The simple twisted-wire ones are pretty quick, but the ball-and-socket brass armatures require more time, usually a total of twenty-four hours or more to cut, drill, file, solder, and assemble the parts. If you can use a sewing machine, you can use one of these things. The needles come in different gauges, are very sharp, and have small barbs near the tips.
You sit there and repeatedly stab the wool fibers until gradually they become wool felting. Clothes come next.

Oftentimes, I either create my own pattern or find old doll patterns and size them to fit the puppets. I usually sketch the clothes design first, including the colors I want to use, and then figure out a pattern. I made a pair of stripey black and white tights for one of my puppets. Shoes are next. I did the shoes digitally in Squawking Matilda , but for the monkey family puppets I experimented with making shoes out of mask latex.
First, you have to sculpt the shoes out of oil-based clay and then do a plaster casting of the shoes. Once the plaster mold is ready, you pour a thin coating of mask latex inside the plaster mold and wait for it to dry out. Puppet shoes! I found a special mask paint that will adhere to the latex, so I can paint them any color I want. Categories of Interest: Select All. Current Affairs. Historical Fiction. True Crime.
