Henrik Puppet by TheDarkestwolf Henrik Puppet by TheDarkestwolf
A present for a very supportive DA friend! Censored just because I didn't want to worry about it. When asked what he wanted for a present he wanted a puppet of himself, so here it is!! Like all puppets it's not supposed to be completely acurate. Distortions such as big heads, hands and feet are intentional. It's been forever since I've done full body sculpey puppets and I forgot how much material it takes to create them! I wasn't happy about it, but I had to make him a lot thinner on the side view to have enough to finish him. :(

Please let me know what you think, though I wish I could do it over again. I made a lot of mistakes relearning the process.

Very nice! I love to make marionettes and puppets...though, I rarely have a volunteer model! What medium do you use? Paper mache? Clay?

Hehehe, Thank you. It was a ton of fun to make!! My favorite medium is Sculpey, the firm version is much easier to work with it & luckily it's already flesh colored! :D

When the sculpey is soft before backing I create one piece with a cut-out groove in it (I choose the larger piece to do this with as it needs more room), and on the part to go into it I a create a tongue to fit. I then put them together and pierce both of them with a needle in the point I want the connection to be, and move them around in order to get the range of motion I want and to make sure it will move smoothly. There's usually a little deformation after seperating them and cooking, but it can usually be fixed with an exacto blade. :)
