Armature - trying out thicker aluminium wire then previously. Seems to work a lot better, would recommend 2.5-3mm thick.
Gluing bandage underwrap foam onto the hand armatures with high-tack spray glue.
Cut the foam to shape and paint on tinted latex. I've only tried this method once or twice before, so these came out pretty nice.
Beginning to spray glue soft foam on to armature.
Trimming the foam down to shape with scissors.
Next, I covered the whole body with the thin bandage underwrap, to give it a smooth skin. This is pretty much where I am now with the puppet. It's looking pretty nice!
