Mugsy: On behalf of TVlesson.com my name is Mugsy with puppetnetwork.com. Today, we’re making puppets. Paul: Now we’re still not done. I like to take another piece of boa and maybe give him a little tussle hair on top so I can take my boa here and I can cut it and again you need to get boa and feathers all over your shop so make sure you have a broom handy after wards. I’m diving the hot glue on top of the puppets head and I’m going to take the boa and I’m going to put that on top in that way he now has some really fuzzy silly hair up on top. And if you want you can add a nose, you can add ears. You can use the same concept for a person puppet, not use fur. Just use maybe antique peel fleas or something like that. You can make animals, you can make teddy bears, you can make all different kinds of monsters obviously, but that’s pretty much how you do it. Mugsy: Alright, so now you’ve learned how to make me, a monster puppet with a glove on but you’re probably asking yourself how do I operate this hand of character. Well, I’m going to show you the first thing you got to remember is head and hand coordination. Make sure the head is operated with separately from the hand so don’t do this because a lot of people will sometimes do this and that look really strange. Make sure that when you’re talking you hand is living a life of its own for instance you’re looking this way and you’re thinking you can kind of take your hand and maybe rub your chin for more realism or you can scratch your head or if you have an idea and you could be like, oh I have an idea.
