Placing the Cheeks on a Look Alike Puppet With Barry Gordemer

“So what’s going to happen here is this foam piece is going to go in inside the puppet there, and then the fingers will go underneath there. And so that’ll do it. And then this piece of foam core is going to go on the top because just my fingers in there, it’s going to cause that foam to push up and the foam core will give it just a little bit of rigidness sort of grips. But remember now I shortened the edges. We shorten those inside edges, to make this face a little more narrow. So I think I just want to shave a little off that inside back edge. So we keep those proportions nice and tight. Take taken off about a quarter. Won’t seem like much, but a quarter of an inch, five millimeters, add them together and it adds up to a half, an inch, 10 millimeters. Then you are talking about a significant noticeable change in the, in the features of the face.”
