Padding out

After completing all of the silicon appendages and attaching them to the puppet my next task was to pad out both puppets using a combination of wadding and foam sheets

I have previously experimented with using UHU glue to secure the foam padding in place but I found that when the glue dried it made the foam very stiff which restricted the armatures moment. I have instead decided to sew the foam on to the puppets. This creates a soft seam and is also useful if I need to remove the foam later to tighten loose joints.
