On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Mugsy with puppetnetwork.com. Today, we’re making puppets. Now, what you want to do is you want to start shaping the mouth for a bit. So what I like to do is, I like to round off the edges on top. And you can kind of go back and make it even on both sides, that’s kind of ok. And then on the bottom, I like to bring it more to a point, so I’m rounding the edges but I’m bringing it more for the point at the center, so we get that kind of deal. And you can actually make the bottom part a little bit smaller. That’s going to be our mouth board. Now, we’re going to put this mouth board into our puppet. Now this part you have to be really careful with, because this is the part where you’re going to use your hot glue gun. So we basically take the mouth board, and we’re going to put it inside the top part of the puppet, like so, and the bottom part of the puppet, like so, alright. And then we’re simply going to do is, we’re going to take our hot glue gun, and we’re going to be carefully create a place inside the mouth where this can live. Again you want to be a really careful, you might have burn yourself, ‘coz it happens quite often. I will advice you to keep a little glass of cold water standing by, not to drink but in case you, you don’t want to wet your finger, you can wet your finger and what will happen is, it will help you dry the glue. So we’ve hot glued that mouth board inside the puppets mouth then, there are any pieces that will lose there for you to stick a little bit more in there. And just press it down and it will be nice to secure in there.
