Anybody got any info about how Paranormans Eyes work and what theyre made of?
Ive watched all the featurettes I can watch and while it shows the eyes in plenty of them Im still not sure of the full workings of them. It looks like the eyelids stay in there and are hinged maybe but I cant make out how the eyeballs stay in there? it also says that the eyeballs are moved around with an exacto knife, I would have thought this would scratch the paint on the eyeballs?
If anyone knows anything about them Id love to know too!!!
How tall is Your Puppet?
My Puppet actually is quite big, the diameter of the eyeball is nearly 2.5 cm. so I don't really need small sized nuts and bolt. However, I still have difficulties in finding nuts and bolts for the eye mechanism of my puppets.
In the end, I did manage to put them together with galvanized wire.
but I think it will be better if you can use the M1 and M2 nuts.
