I want to do this as an experiment some time later this year (need to set up a few things first). But I thought it would be interesting to try shooting some 12fps stuff on medium format film, then…Continue

Hi guys, I was just wondering if you had any thoughts about making sandwich plates out of brass, instead of mild steel? I understand that whatever material you use for the plates should be softer…Continue

"Hi Nick! I too had problems with brass giving out under tension (aside from the galling issues), but the 510 bronze I use is steel-like in its strength. To solve the rot problem, I spray the armature in a simple coating; Sprayon 322 silver vinyl…"

"I like brass and aluminium because I can cut them with my bandsaw, unlike steel.  But I use aluminium more often than brass, because it doesn't rot the latex that I usually use, and because it is lighter in weight.  You can cover the…"

trikfx replied to Hendrikus De Vaan's discussion What's everyone's favorite armature? Available as either a kit or pre-made?
"Thanks Hendrikus; I always thought the armature was the best part of any puppet. I had quite a natural knack for making armatures, but it was the generosity of my (very skilled) teachers that made all the difference. I really miss doing it for a…"
