This one was made by my son years after the previously posted marionettes. I taught a summer class for Jr. High students making marionettes. With this one I only had to help just a little, sewing the seams with a sewing machine, I believe that was it, he made the whole thing. The head is paper mache, the hands and feet are Sculpty clay and the body is an old sock. It took about three weeks--four, one hour classes a week to finish. I wish I had pictures of all the great puppets made at that time. Maybe I do! I'll have to do some searching...
These puppets have made me think about my time as an art teacher. I may post about that too.
