Hello all, you probably don't know me but I've been lurking in this forum for awhile now. I love clay and sculpting but I haven't ever worked on it for myself, I've done it for a class project once and for a show I designed (as the base for masks).
Today, a friend called me asking for my help on a show she's volunteering at. The guy who said he would make the puppets for it is no longer willing, and someone else has to do it! Mel, my friend, could not take on this project alone.
Neither of us has made MOVEABLE clay guys before. Has any of you? I'm about to look it up, but any advice or knowledge to share would be hugely appreciated!!
The show is Yoman of the Guard (Gilbert & Sullivan). The puppets will be Point the Jester and Elsie the milk maid.
Hopefully this will turn out successful, so I will post piccies of how things are coming along
