Puppet Update

I was experimenting with some new techniques the other day so I thought the best way to work out if they were successful was to make a new character... so ladies and gentlemen please give a warm welcome to Konk!
Konk is made almost entirely from antron fleece. His arms are long pile fur fabric. His head is made completely from reticulated foam for extra durability. I carved his nose out of a block of square foam, and dyed it to suit the rest of the character. Konk is all complete and I am pleased to say I am really pleased with the results. If you would like to take a closer look at him you're more than welcome, in fact he's sitting on ebay at the moment waiting for someone to collect him :)
All the best - Dave

How neat is he, love the name! I have yet to venture into the professional side of anrton fleece and reticulated foam, but am trying to find suppliers in the area. Is it not a pain to dye it? I would love to do that to some white fur I have, but the thought the clean-up just scares me!
