Details, details

Finishing off a puppet often requires an amount of time equal to that of building the complete under structure. That's true of ventriloquist figures and that's true of cereal box puppets. It takes several gluing steps to cover the wooden unit with the empty carboard box. Holes for eyes and mouth are cut with care. Here I am using a Q-tip and black paint to touch up the cut edges of the cardboard. Next I will add eyelids/brows to the eyes and close off the back of the mouth with black art foam plus add a pink tongue and white teeth. Then, and only then, the puppet will finally be complete.
