" Thanks for the advice Nick. I see what you mean, George's top lip area is more pronounced, which I have roughly fixed. Looking much better now, but still needs work. "

"If that is hard putty, I wouldn't put it on the wrist like that. That is the spot where the wrist should bend. This could make you have to bend it further up, where the forearm bones should be, which looks pretty ugly. Any action where you need…"

"I don't get it, you just paint over the wire? How many layers does it take to be like that?"

"I might actually upscale the puppet size to 1:6 (12 inches) because then it would be easier to get action figure clothing to fit. I'm not really skilled with a sewing machine so making clothes could be difficult."
