Dear San D,
The new puppets are marvelous!
Thank you for sharing, and thank you for the heads up on soaking the paper
in large tubs beforehand.

I added a few new puppets from my students and 1 table top puppet that I
made. These handpuppets were based on a technique I learned at the National
Puppet Festival last summer. First you carve styrofoam, then you put 3
layers of papermache on top of the shapes. The artist who did the workshop
recommended soaking the paper 24 hours before paper macheing. He also used a
wallpaper paste that was premixed. I used a glue and water combination.
