Very well made. I wish that I had building skills like that. But on a personal level, I enjoy the performing side of puppetry more, except you can't perform without a puppet.

I just had to comment again. Truly amazing work. I am really inspired. I have spent a LOT of time at your webpage.

One question. Do you ever do workshops? I would be greatly interested in a workshop if you were involved!

Thanks!

Thanks again, guys (that includes you to staceyrebecca...yar).

CrazyHarryFan, I haven't done any workshops. There always seems to be too many obstacles...place to have it...lack of local interest...etc. I think it would be a fun time though!

Thanks guys!

I posted some "behind the scenes" pics over on PuppetHub.

TheCreatureWork, the glasses are carved from wood (balsa), sanded, and almost endlessly sprayed with black Plasti-Dip to give a more plastic look. The puppet was meant to be mainly for display, otherwise I probably would have had to make them from a more durable material. But balsa served the purpose this time, was very lightweight, and the glasses fit Spike perfectly.
How did you make the head
