After completing my moulds, I moved back onto sculpting the head of my character. I have added a K & S locking system for the different mouths that will be made ready for lip syncing as part of my latest animation. Also, I have used discarded bracelet beads for the eyes. They aren’t perfectly white but I thought seeing as my character isn’t technically human it shouldn’t matter if they are a little off colour.
To make my puppet’s hair, I attached blue sponge material to separate pieces of twisted aluminium wire and cut and shaped them with scissors to achieve the desired shape.
Then, I stuck them into holes in the back of the head and glued them in with hot glue. I decided to try this method because I wanted to give my hair a little bit of moment and I would have been unable to achieve this if I had just sculpted the hair on top of the head.
