I didn't pay attention to the details of an earlier post--

WHAT is mixed with fine sawdust to mold the heads and arms?

I've got barrels and barrels of sawdust that comes from the dust =
collectors in the woodshop above me (and you guys just wouldn't believe =
what this woodshop looks like--WOW!) and it got me thinking.... Free =
resource available, there....

During the second trimester which is devoted to sculpture, I'd planned =
to do Screamers with my upper school students. Still want to. But I'm =
also thinking that I might give a choice of a Screamer or a marionette =
because so many of our foreign kids simply wouldn't be able to take a =
full-sized Screamer home with them....

I'd love to hear more about the process of mixing the materials to form =
the heads, arms, legs, and body (perhaps) and also from anyone who's =
made highly detailed (and clothed) marionettes.

I've recently gotten an incredible assortment of donations--TONS of =
fabric and yarn and sewing supplies. Marionettes sound like a good way =
to use some of this material.=20

Thanks for your help--I'm excited about this possibility!! And I'd love =
to hear of other uses for fine sawdust!!
