I have a hard time with the collar and the body size. Either he is too fat or too skinny.
Yea body shape was an area i struggled with!
There is a collar pattern online if you google it.. I just printed that on A4 without adjusting the size atall.
If it helps, the neck is a bit of a squeeze to get your hand through but sits snug on the wrist. Its great to enable indipendant movement of the head without the whole body moving
That seems like the collar, what's the body color?
Also, where can I get fabric of it? I did a quick search on Google and found nothing.
This probably sounds like a dumb question, but what did you use for his eyes? (I'm new to puppet making)
PMS 375 is the correct colour for the body.
His eyes are 35mm dome eyes.
You can get those 35MM eyes from many places. I buy them from Out of the Box Puppets.
How do you attach the eyes ?(again im new to puppet building)
(So far I've used ping pong balls and hot glue)
Thanks, sorry i forgot to post a link to a seller..doh!
The half dome eyes come with washers that attach to the posts in the back og the eye. No glue needed.
Sorry, one more question, what do you use for the pupils, and how do you cut them/draw them on so perfectly?
They are cut from black electrical tape.
I find a photo of kermits eyes and print them up actual size. Then i stick some tape on the back of the photo behind the pupil and just cut it out. Then peel the tape off and sticknit on my eye
Wow! Thanks for helping me out!
I love the hands, and the great body shape! Superb job!
Here he is with my Gonzo
So did you make the head separate from the body or is it attached?
It's going to be separate.
Yea head and body are seperate peices.
But stitch is of course hidden, ANTRON FLEECE RULES!
Separate names with a comma.
