How to make puppets or marionettes out of clay.


Most puppets begin as an idea.  The idea defines how a puppet will be made.  Will it be a marionette?  Then it will need detailed drawings of the moving parts.  Will it be a hand puppet? Then it will need a drawingof the head and the hands of the character.  Then, a drawing is made.  It might be a simple pencil drawing. or a complicated one.
