The DVD is now a download! I will send you an e-mail with the two digrams you get with the film, with all the imformation on it, then another e-mail with the actual film attached. Even though I don't need a DVD case anymore, I made it just a a promotional picture really. I still havn't put it on Etsy, but I will as soon as more people start telling me they want it. Sorry it's been a while scince I posted the sort of stuff most of you want to see, but as I'm sure you can understand, I'm making a DVD here!!!

How to make brass tube armatures DVD is ready to be released!!

WOOOO! Finaly, after all out hard work, the DVD on how to create brass tube armatures is finished. Well, the actual film is anyway, but I still need to put it on to disk and make a cover for it, then I am ready. It is only short, aprox. 24 minutes, but covers all you need to know about creating them. Do you remember the armature I showed you a couple of posts ago? Well I teach you how to make that. Thankyou very much Joe for providing the camera, and filming! Here is a preview of what you will see:

With the boxed DVD you will also recieve a diagram of the armature to work along, and a diagram of how to make the wooden feet that work so well! For all that, I am charging just £6.50, which is roughly $12.89, that price is not certain yet, but I will carry on thinking about it.
You do not get to see my face in the whole DVD, so don't worry, Fish's identity won't get shown! By the way, don't be cheaky and say that it says you can get the whole DVD here, like I said, it's not finished yet!

News reader and Explorer

Hi everyone! Sorry I havn't posted in ages, I've been very busy!
Firstly, I built a newsreader puppet, just for fun.
Here is me putting Epoxy onto the armature to strengthen it:
Finished armature, as you can see, the head is removeable:Here is the nearly finished puppet:
The removeable head:
Replacement mouth (incase I ever wanted to animate him):
The finished puppet:

Now, remember this guy? I'm not sure if I ever showed him to you, but I made him about a year ago.
On giving it some thought, I decided I should do a remake of him, as I like how he looks, but he is too small to animate and has a rubbish armature. So, remember that armature I showed you in the last post? Well, I used that as his armature. Here are some pics of constructing him - enjoy!:

So far we can only call him 'The explorer' as his name cannot be revealed untill I am sure I am happy with it. I have a timelapse of me making him, and will put it on youtube sometime soon.
