Pacino the Wolf by Nectarine Pacino the Wolf by Nectarine
The making of the big bad wolf.....HUGE THANKS to ASH for making the teeth, PATRICK for cutting out and putting shit together so it doesn't fall apart, and John for lending me the use of the studio in shacklewell lane. Commissioned by Jay Green at Oakham School, leicester, England, Thanks for giving me such a cool job!

He's for an adaptation of Peter and the Wolf and other wolf related stories and folk law. Oakham school runs their drama department more like a proper theatre, they put on a lot of shows throughout the year and this ones even doing the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Pacino is a bunraku style puppet, needing three people to operate him to maximum potential. He has a moving mouth and lighted eyes, jointed legs, and wagging tail. From nose to tail tip he's 6ft long. Made from aluminum, MDF, plasterzote, fake fur, styrofoam and fibre glass resin. Ooo and Milliput teeth and claws.

Woah...this is the best wolf puppet i've ever seen!
Wish there were tutorials for puppets like these though, i've been looking EVERYWHERE for a wolf puppet tutorial, i haven't even found one. -_-

How long did he take to build?
