I have a couple of questions: The first one is for Andrew. When looking at your Tumbles Project I noticed that the foam seems to be covered with something. It looks to me like you covered the foam with latex. If so... how do you do that? and why? My second question is about hands. I'm trying to figure out how to make a hand grasp something. If only the index finger and the thumb can do this that would already be great. I've studied those 'robot'arms before and I think I get it. But it would be alot of work making all the fingers myself etc. Does anyone have a good link for me with an example of grasping fingers? I just bought a PVC pipe and some pipe isolation material wich fits perfectly. This should work well to make arms out of and having the PVC pipe in there will leave me with enough room to run cables to the hands without having it damage the foam from the inside. I don't know. Maybe it's a usefull tip. It seemed to make sense to me. And it only cost me a dollar or so. My third and last question is about mouthplate material. I hear people talking about 'foamies' but I don't have a clue what kind of material that is. Can anyone explain to me what it is or maybe reccomend a substitute? My first try was done with cardboard but the mouth already won't close properly anymore because the cardboard got bent. Oh and on another unrelated note: TMNT, The Secret Of The Ooze, is now officially my new favorite puppetry movie. I saw it for the first time last Saturday and all I can say is... Wow!
