hello, i have made a puppet for a short animation where the puppet comes on and performs bizarre and simply disturbing magic tricks, the puppet itself is a 9" human figure that is a bit skinny with an owls head (for surreal purposes) so it is very heaving on top, i'm in the early stages of preparation and i'm finding it difficult to keep it standing, the feet are smallish to keep to proportion, when i'm done with this puppet i'm going to remake it to star in a variety of shorts with similar characters and will be the size of a mug or slightly larger so it may not have this problem, i've tried bluetack and i cant afford a rig to hang over the puppet to hold it up on strings, can anybody help. 

thank you

alex

thank you, i never thought of using holes in the set, but thats probably because i have only ever used clay or not used a storyboard to know where the model is going beforehand, once again thanks.
