    Puppet Strings Help

    You can buy metal fishing line. The original Thunderbirds puppets used tungsten wire, and those puppets are quite heavy. Maybe you could use metal line for the supporting strings, and invisible thread for the limbs.

    Hello Muppet Fans. Been lurking for a while. Thought I'd share a pic of my MR Animal. Not customised much. Coloured his eyelids black with permanent marker and added $8 of plastic chain which I sprayed silver. Used hair wax to get his...
