    I've been playing around with making puppets for almost a year and im almost getting the hang of it, it doesnt take long. I've been breaking a few rules and making them whatever way I feel like and theyve been turning out ok so if I can do it anyone can.
    Good Luck.

    1. There are no rules.

    That is all.
  7. I've peen building puppets for 8 years now and all I know about building them is that I know very little. Everytime I make a puppet, I make detailed patterns and sketches thinking that documenting the creation of this puppet will make my next endeavor at building a piece of cake. But every puppet is different and I've basically have to start from scratch with every puppet I make. Puppet making is an endless learning streak.

    well i've only been making puppets for like six months. but what i've learned so far is that if you try to plan to much it never turns out the way you want(this may be because of the fact that my sewing machine is evil and i can't sew for beens)and also, I don't know if you're a puppeteer or not but i've found that it really helps if you know what's good in a puppet to know how to make one.





    p.s. the latest puppet that i've made is on my avatar
