I wish I had earlier process photos to show y'all, but I've only just started documenting my work in stages.
Despite the title, this guy will be "Father Earth" when he's done. This will be a rod puppet like my others, although he's slightly bigger. The head and upper torso and the hands (not shown because I broke one of 'em :eek: ) are super sculpey with acrylic.
He vaguely reminds me of Shel Silverstein...
Signature on the back
This is a very special gift for my Dad, who to me is very wise, nurturing and one helluva gardener. He's also been pestering me for a puppet for over a year now. The back is stamped with my trademark seal (one of my grandma's buttons)
Any feedback would be welcome - I should have pics of him in costume soon... I spent all afternoon dyeing the fabric.
