1  Meow meow! cats puppets! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by karlamena on: September 17, 2007 11:11:23 AM
The siamese cat looks washed out because of the flash, but I asure you she's not blue! Her name is Agata and her "friend" is Gato Cuyano.
They're made of foam and fabric, the eyes are painted ping pong balls cut in half.



It's like the feline version of "The lady and the tramp" Wink

2  Box for drying herbs and vase in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by karlamena on: September 16, 2007 05:08:21 PM
Hi there! I've been posting like crazy today, I find sundays very boring (you know, in Argentina Sundays are for watching soccer  Roll Eyes )
This a box made of red clay for drying herbs and a little vase to go along with it and look cute in the kitchen Wink





I haven't try them out yet becuase they were baked just a couple of days ago, but I'm sure they will be useful somehow.

Wow, those are beautiful.  How big are they? What kind of finish/glaze did you use?  I love the grays and surface texture.  What are you plans for all of them?

They're about 30 cm tall. They were exhibit last June in San Juan, Argentina, with other artist drawings and live popular argentinean music. One of them was sold (kind of, still pending) and a four were given as a gift.
Sorry if I can't explain myself properly, my first language is Spanish and I don't know some words and materials  Embarrassed
This is how they looked in the exhibition:





As you can see, they're not too big, I wish I could post all of them big, they have very expressive faces!

Those are great! The devil guy is awesome.

I love looking at puppets. I've tried making some before and failed miserably, so I know that they take a lot of hard work and patience.

What did you use to cut the foam? I've tried sculpting with an electric carving knife, but the results weren't very good. Did you cut off little bits of foam and glue them on for details, or were the puppets purely carved?

Very nice job! I hope you post more of your work (and some tutorials! Wink).

I would have a big problem trying to post a tutorial because it's very hard to write in english for me  Cheesy
It's carved with a cutter and the details are glue, like the eyes (they are ping-pong balls cut in half) and the inside of the mouth that is fabric.
I posted a picture of Ophelia in the toys board, but I will posted here too, even though is not a puppet per se, she was made for an exhibition.

Thank you for the comments!

Hi again! this is Ophelia. She was made for an exhibit, we were given a box and had to make something out of it. She is small (20x15 cm) and very cute, isn't she?



Hope you like her!

Hi! I'm new here, I'm a plastic artist and I wanted to share my work with you, these puppets are made for the company Zonda y Sur.
I have pictures of each character that I can post later. The old man has sewn 2000 hairs on his head, each one put individually.




I hope you like them!
