  3. Walter is truly a master piece;) I'm charmed by his hands, really. Would you be able to show us a couple of pictures of his armature? And maybe if it's not too much, of the hands too or the process of making them?? Thanks! P.S All the best with your film!

  5. Mrenglish: I have a few photos of his hands being made which I will post on the blog in the next few days (along with a tutorial about sewing invisible miniature seams for clothes). The hands were just blobs of epoxy putty with aluminium armature wire for fingers, with coloured copydex (liquid latex) built up in layers over several weeks, then knuckles and wrinkles were added by dabbing more coloured latex on with a toothpick.
    The armature is just aluminium armature wire and epoxy putty - nothing very technical at all!

    Dave Bones: I don't know. Ask me again in a year or so when it's finished. We are hoping it will get into a few film festivals, but that all depends on my animation skills!
