On behalf of tvlesson.com, my name is Mugsy with puppetnetwork.com. Today, we’re making puppets. The next thing that we’re going to do is we’re going to create some eyes for our puppet character. We start decorating this puppet’s face. So I like to use Styrofoam ball, it’s cheap and they look just as good as plastic eggs, ok. And again you need to be delicate with this puppet when you operate them, just because you’re using Styrofoam doesn’t mean it’s going to break right away. Don’t just slam the puppets face with the concrete, ok; try not to do that if you can help it, alright. Just take the Styrofoam ball, cut it right in half, just like that, alright. Now, you can start pushing the bottom in there so you have a nice flat bottom, alright. And you’re going to have these two, you know, egg shapes, they’re going to be the eye. And you’re going to take the egg shape, the first one, and you’re going to put some hot glue on it, you’ll hear a crackle a bit, it’s exactly what it’s supposed to do. And you’ll find a spot on a puppets head where you want the eyes to be. I would suggest that you put them on an angled kind of position, if you want, if you want you puppet head droopy eyes, and you push down, you want to do that with the other eye as well, and you want to do it kind of fast, because you like them that to dry both kind of around the same time. And again, be careful, you might burn yourself. And the second eye will go like that, now I like to put the puppet’s eyes kind of touching each other like that, because it kind of mix the character look more cartoonish, so if you can hold it like that for about 5 minutes or so, at the time that you’re done, this could be nice and flush against the puppets head.
