Philip from Thistledown Puppets has really knocked this out of the park, I mean it's just looking amazing. In his own words Philip explains the covering,
"I chose a crushed panne fabric for the skin because it’s thin, stretchy, and with the slight sheen it reminded me of dragon scales."
I love the hair on it; the little beard, especially. I'm just very pleased to see this project come together, literally piece by piece.
I'm a little envious of someone who can make puppets. I love sculpture and good puppetry seems to me like living sculpture.
