I'm really keen to get hold of some Puppet putty and try it out - videos on youtube etc look interesting. Does anyone know of anywhere that sells it in the UK?
Also if anyone has actually used it I'd be interested to hear what you think of it
I have used it for one short animation and really liked it. It's not sticky and the color doesn't come off onto your hands. I made the character without an armature inside and it was able to hold shape well. It is much waxier than plasticine and needs to be warmed up before it gets to a good animatable consistency kind of like chavant clay but less sticky. Don, who makes the clay, is also able to do custom colors and is really helpful and knowledgeable about his creation.
You can try standart plasteline?
Thanks for your reply Adam. Your animation looks good.
I haven't found anywhere to buy it in the UK so I guess I'll just have to buy it from the maker and just pay the shipping
