My Earl of Rone puppet is very nearly done, I just need to paint his string of ships's biscuits and hang them around his neck. I made him some nice crude, little hands out of cut down bamboo skewers wrapped in a bit of mod-roc. I like the feel of them for him. I've fixed his hood in place and made him some legs. I might not attach them, for now i'm going to just use a couple of safety pins to see how i feel. It's nice that they are stiff enough to just stand up by themselves under his costume, for display purposes. I found the perfect stand for him in an old 99p mug tree with a few of the pegs cut off, i might customise it to feel a bit more like woodland.
