First blog post

So, looks like any member can have a blog here!

If I were blogging, maybe I would say how I finished my part of the animation on a short film by Isabel Peppard called Butterflies, and link to her production blog...

http://butterfliesanimation.com/

So if that worked, it should be a link.

Trying something else - A Direct link to a time lapse video posted on a page of the butterflies blog.…

Hey Nick!

That's actually not my puppet, i was just hurriedly making a profile the other day and didn't have time to get my photos organised. I'll be putting up my own work soon though.

That short you worked on looks great! Have you got a studio in Melbourne?

Hey Nick! We really appreciate your work and your tutorials!

I just found your video on liquid latex build up for hands, it's very helpful! I'm about to try it out for the first time now. Just wondering if you can paint the skin colour onto latex after it's dried or does it have to be mixed in before hand?

Hey Nick,
Would you be open to selling a couple of sets of your "T" and Slot style Tie-down's?

I'd rather buy a couple off of you to test, before I source the tools to make my own.

Hey Nick, its Horis573 if you look at my photos you can see the puppet I wanted to show you on Youtube when I commented on your video."Lizard Ape"

Thank you for all Nick!

I'm glad about all what you show! Thank you so much!

Hi, i'm currently making a Life sized realistic, raptor head puppet for stop motion, that involves recycled cushion foam, Aluminium wire(for the armature frame) glue, plywood, liquid latex, screws, washers, and paint, do you think that all purpose glue will be good for sticking the foam to the wire and the plywood? P.S You're awesome, and my project is inspired by the building of your amazing Dragon head puppet. I will post the finished project, and and animation to go with it, on your page. I hope you read this and i hope you enjoy the results.

Hi Nick, I wanted to thank you for your tutorials.  They really are the best sources around for puppet fabrication, especially for beginners like me.  So, again, thank you!

You are the best, you are an inspirartion to me. Please accept my request that i sent you 3 months ago
