Fox puppet..hung by Nectarine Fox puppet..hung by Nectarine
Fox puppet commissioned for Babes in the Wood Pantomime on in Devon this Christmas.

Constructed much in the same way as the wolf. This time I've used a thin ply wood to make him lighter and the head is pattern cut from plastazote so it's nice and light. I've also sprung the ankle joints so they spring back when the foot is lifted off the ground and used rods, hopefully these will reduce how much the puppeteers obscure the puppet and make for better control.

I am currently a high school student aspiring to be a puppet maker. I love your work! Where do you study how to make your puppets? I have been having trouble finding schools that provide that. Thanks for the inspiration and help :)

Wow, this is magnificent! Rods... I'm curious how it works. I see in other comments you've got a link to a video for a wolf puppet. I'll look for that :]
