Howdy' yalls.... I have been making puppets for over a year or so now, and i just recently got my little fingers onto the ALP videos Thanks. In the past i have been using foam core or gator board for mouth plates. I want to make a firm mouth plate, but i don't like foam core because i breaks down too easily. If i am going to put that much time and effort into a puppet i want it to last a while. Here is the reason for this post. I would like to assemble a list of easy to find and easy to use products to make firm mouth plates. sintra is hard to find unless you live in town with a sign shop... does anyone have a meterial they use that you can get from lowes or home depot or wal mart? HOw do you cut it, how do you use it. Thanks.
