Process

The  baby marionette was created primarily out of foam, paper mache, tape, and a doll. The doll was used a a structure to build off of and pad out in order to create the silhouette the designer was looking for.  The paper mache was cut and laid in a circular motion creating a unique and almost mummied effect. Lastly, the eyes were made and the puppet was finally painted.
