Hester The Hare again by Nectarine Hester The Hare again by Nectarine
Hester is one of the Demons from His Dark Materials. Currently touring the uk, as part of Birmingham REP and North Yorkshire Playhouse in collaboration with Blind Summit (who I had the pleasure of working with and gave me the opportunity to make Hester's Head and paws and painting her)

She's made out of Plasterzote....and thats about it, a little bit of wood and metal for the handles but practically all plasterzote (which is another name for that 'funky foam' you get for kids to play with, or that camping ground mats are made from.)

oh wow, what a good idea, lightweight, flexible and mouldable all in one! :D I love his eyes, well done :D

are the ears also foam? how do they hold up so well, isn't the foam too soft for such?

yet again, an awesome puppet :)

This one was featured too! That Plasterzote material looks very interesting.

It was featured? Plasterzote's great but It does depress me that it's not recyclable.
