Introduction

Puppetry Is possibly one of the most ancient forms of art and entertainment and has its roots in tribal societies. Puppetry involves the use of movable toys controlled by one or several puppeteers. This may be through several methods like strings, rods or shadows. The voice of a puppeteer adds life to a puppet.

Although some puppets are extremely complex, the puppets in this book have been made using easily available material and are simple to make. A few tips on how to use this book are given below.

1. Use of templates:

A design that can be used as a framework to make the puppet has been provided at the end of most chapters in the templates section.

• The template patterns given in the book may be traced on buffer paper and transferred on to a pastel sheet, felt etc. with white or yellow carbon.
• To enlarge the templates to a bigger size, a photocopier or scanner can be used.
• The templates have been labelled with the name of the body part, colour and number of pieces (P) required.

Eyes

Eye templates have been provided in the templates section. Googly eyes give more life to a puppet. Some sock puppets have table tennis balls turned into eyes. Other sock puppets have eyes made out of buttons. The size of the puppet is an important consideration while pasting eyes.

Adhesive

After applying adhesive on an area, clips and pins to keep the pieces in also to stick the pieces quickly.
Paper may require 5 to 10 minutes of drying time after application of adhesive.
Felt, cloth, wool and socks will require fabric glue to stick and will require at least 30 minutes of drying time.

Hair

Hair for the puppet may be made straw, cotton or even paper. To look interesting, long, short and hair can be fixed on them.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
