"I use epoxy putty if I want hard heads.  You don't bake it in an oven.  You mix two parts together, then it hardens.  There is one in the hardware store that sets very quickly, like 5 minutes, that is ok for simple shapes.…"

"For heavier puppets, I use a ball-and-socket rig.  I have a mounting point on the puppet armature, where I can screw in a short rod with a steel ball on it.  The rig has a pair of plates that grip the ball.  It is usually attached to…"

"Clothes in Wind:  I like to have some wire in the edges of the clothing to make it flap in the wind.  But not a complete web of wire everywhere, or it will bend every time you grab it, even if there is no wind in that scene.   I tried…"

StopmoNick replied to DimensionalAnimator's discussion Epoxy breaks
"T-nuts look like a great solution! I've use thin nuts (called half-nuts) glued onto the top of a wire loop, the idea being that the tie down will pull it down onto the wire, not pull it away.  But I also put epoxy putty around it, to be…"

"T nuts are sold for wood work. The prongs stick into the wood to hold it. So you will need to get them from a company that sells this sort of fastening."
