Herbal Viagra Reviews

Herbal viagra reviews Want to know how to make one of those furry monster puppets? (Well, herbal viagra reviews or any similar puppets that’s not furry?) In this post, herbal viagra reviews I am going to show you how to make Mac and Cheese, herbal viagra reviews the puppet that you’ve seen in every podcast episode on this site so far. Herbal viagra reviews This is what he looks like: (By the way, herbal viagra reviews if you are looking for how to make Mac and Cheese the recipe, herbal viagra reviews click here.)
For the most part, herbal viagra reviews I followed this video by puppeteer/puppet builder Paul Louis, herbal viagra reviews but I’ve also made a few variations on my own based on what’s available to me at the time. Herbal viagra reviews For example, herbal viagra reviews he used both glue gun and contact cement for gluing, herbal viagra reviews and I used only my hot glue gun. Herbal viagra reviews He used foam to stuff the puppet’s head and I didn’t feel like using it. Herbal viagra reviews He used untangled wire hangers for arm rods while I just bought bamboo skewers from the supermarket across the street. Herbal viagra reviews So yeah, herbal viagra reviews you should feel free to experiment with different materials too. Herbal viagra reviews Here’s a list of materials used by Paul Louis to make his puppet in the video, herbal viagra reviews and the materials I used to make Mac and Cheese:

Parts Paul’s puppet Mac and Cheese
Main body fleece fleece
Mouth board (interior) juice carton tissue paper box
Mouth board (exterior) black felt black T-shirt
Tongue red felt red felt
Eyes Ping-pong ball Index card

Arm rods wire hangers Bamboo skewers
Nose Pom-pom ain’t got one
Head stuffing foam bag of polyfill

Arm stuffing Polyfill Polyfill
Sewing Sewing machine Needle and thread
Glues contact cement and hot glue hot glue only

Herbal viagra reviews Now here are the steps. Herbal viagra reviews The numbers on the pictures correspond to the steps. Herbal viagra reviews Please click on them to see the details. Herbal viagra reviews I had to use thumbnails here, herbal viagra reviews or the article will appear way too long. Herbal viagra reviews Also, herbal viagra reviews keep in mind that Mac and Cheese was the first of this type of puppet I built so it’s a prototype and I did make mistakes along the way that I would also point out.

Herbal viagra reviews make-mc-1.jpgmake-mc-2.jpgmake-mc-3.jpgmake-mc-4.jpgmake-mc-5.jpg
1. Herbal viagra reviews Draw out a pattern: Draw a head and a body. Herbal viagra reviews (If you are wondering why I sort of traced my palm and fingers in the face part, herbal viagra reviews it’s because it’s a good measurement for how big that circle should be. Herbal viagra reviews If you’ve ever asked other people or been asked the trick question “Is your hand bigger than your face?”, herbal viagra reviews you know.)
2. Herbal viagra reviews Cut out the pattern: You will have an easier time tracing it onto the fabric that way.
3. Herbal viagra reviews Trace the pattern onto the folded fabric: I used a permanent marker. Herbal viagra reviews There are fabric markers that you can buy at fabric/craft stores as well. Herbal viagra reviews If a regular pen works for you, herbal viagra reviews go ahead and use that too. Herbal viagra reviews Notice that the fabric has to be folded, herbal viagra reviews so you can sew the two layers together.
4. Herbal viagra reviews Sew along the line: In the video he used a sewing machine. Herbal viagra reviews However, herbal viagra reviews since I don’t have one, herbal viagra reviews and this is a prototype I am using to learn every single detail, herbal viagra reviews I did this part by hand. Herbal viagra reviews I used back-stitches. Herbal viagra reviews They are time-consuming but very sturdy.
5. Herbal viagra reviews Cut around the stitches and flip it inside out: Be careful not to cut the actual stitches. Herbal viagra reviews It’s fine to leave some fabric outside the stitched border since you are flipping it inside out anyway. Herbal viagra reviews You should now have sort of a bag that you can put your hand in.
6. Herbal viagra reviews Cut a slit across the head/face part: Along the middle line is probably the best to allow the most mouth movement and flexibilities. Herbal viagra reviews If you cut this slit too high or too low, herbal viagra reviews you will have difficulties opening and closing the mouth.
7. Herbal viagra reviews Make a mouth board using cardboard and fabric: In the video, herbal viagra reviews a juice carton was used. Herbal viagra reviews I used a tissue paper box. Herbal viagra reviews I’ve also used other boxes on other puppets so any cardboard would do. Herbal viagra reviews Make sure you fold it in the middle so it’s like a mouth. Herbal viagra reviews Next, herbal viagra reviews cover it with a piece of black fabric (felt, herbal viagra reviews T-shirt, herbal viagra reviews or even sheet foam) and glue the cardboard and the fabric together. Herbal viagra reviews In the video, herbal viagra reviews contact cement was used, herbal viagra reviews but I just used my trusty glue gun. Herbal viagra reviews Cut the fabric according to the shape of the cardboard and now the mouth board is done.
8. Herbal viagra reviews Stick the mouth board into the slit and glue them together around the edge: For the mouth and slit to fit each other, herbal viagra reviews the diameter of the mouth board should be approximately 2/3 of the length of the slit. Herbal viagra reviews Of course, herbal viagra reviews that’s only an estimate. Herbal viagra reviews You should probably try to stick the cardboard into the slit before you glue on the fabric, herbal viagra reviews because then you can go back and make more changes to the cardboard to find the ideal size and shape.
9. Herbal viagra reviews Make a little bag and stuff it with polyfill. Herbal viagra reviews Slide into the puppet’s head above the mouth board. Herbal viagra reviews In the video, herbal viagra reviews foam was used. Herbal viagra reviews Since I don’t have foam, herbal viagra reviews I made a bag by folding a piece of fabric over and gluing the edges. Herbal viagra reviews I then put the polyfill in from the opening and just fold over the extra fabrics at the opening. Herbal viagra reviews I didn’t seal it because I might want to adjust the shape and size again later. Herbal viagra reviews Slide this bag into the head above the mouth board. Herbal viagra reviews Don’t worry, herbal viagra reviews it won’t fall out because the mouth board is there. Herbal viagra reviews Squeeze things around to get the head shape you want. Herbal viagra reviews If it’s too much or too little stuffing, herbal viagra reviews take the bag out again to adjust the amount of polyfill in there.
10. Herbal viagra reviews Make the arms: Like the body, herbal viagra reviews it’s just a piece of fabric folded over, herbal viagra reviews sewn together, herbal viagra reviews cut out, herbal viagra reviews and flipping over. Herbal viagra reviews Stuff the arms with polyfill. Herbal viagra reviews Note that I really should put the arm rods in first (steps 11 and 12) but since this was my prototype, herbal viagra reviews I didn’t do that right. Herbal viagra reviews Actually, herbal viagra reviews it depends. Herbal viagra reviews If your rod is installed into the palm, herbal viagra reviews you should put in the rod before you stuff the arm. Herbal viagra reviews However, herbal viagra reviews if the rod is installed on the outside, herbal viagra reviews you should install the rods later. Herbal viagra reviews Stuffing the arms give the arms some shape, herbal viagra reviews but don’t stuff too much because you still want the arms to be flexible. Herbal viagra reviews Squeeze the middle part and then bend it back and forth a few times. Herbal viagra reviews This pushes the polyfill to either the upper or lower arm, herbal viagra reviews hence creating a two part arm with a joint in between.
11. Herbal viagra reviews Make arm rods: I used the sharp end of the skewer to penetrate the middle zigzag layer of the cardboard (but not all the way through). Herbal viagra reviews Pull the skewer out, herbal viagra reviews put some glue on the tip and insert it again. Herbal viagra reviews This time the cardboard and skewer will stick together.
12. Herbal viagra reviews Open up the wrist to stick the arm rod in: I cut open the puppet’s wrist to put in the arm rod made from a bamboo skewer. Herbal viagra reviews The skewer should come out the bottom of the palm. Herbal viagra reviews The cardboard will make sure the arm rod is fixed in place. Herbal viagra reviews Close up the wrist again. Herbal viagra reviews Note that if I had done this in the right order, herbal viagra reviews I would’ve installed the rod before I stuffed the arm. Herbal viagra reviews If I did that, herbal viagra reviews then I didn’t need to open up the wrist again.
13. Herbal viagra reviews Glue on the eyes and arms: In the video he used ping-pong balls, herbal viagra reviews which created more 3-D eyes. Herbal viagra reviews I didn’t have ping-pong balls at the moment, herbal viagra reviews and I wanted to see what it would be like if I just drew eyes on an index card and cut them out. Herbal viagra reviews So I did that and glued the eyes to the head. Herbal viagra reviews The arms can be glued on or sewn on. Herbal viagra reviews I tried to glue and then sew, herbal viagra reviews but it’s mostly glued because later I realized that it’s very hard to sew through that layer of glue with the needles I have. Herbal viagra reviews So they were just glued on and I’ve been puppeteering it for a while now and it didn’t seem to be falling off… that’s a good thing. Herbal viagra reviews By this step, herbal viagra reviews the puppet is pretty much done.
14. Herbal viagra reviews Glue the tongue into the mouth: That red tongue is made from a piece of felt. Herbal viagra reviews You would have used something else or just skip this step. Herbal viagra reviews (For example, herbal viagra reviews Bottle Monster doesn’t have a tongue like this.)

Herbal viagra reviews So there you go. Herbal viagra reviews That’s how you make Mac and Cheese. Herbal viagra reviews I hope this article is helpful if you are trying to build your own puppet at home. Herbal viagra reviews :-)

    […] a few modifications of my own. You can also find my own tutorials on this website for building a monster puppet with arm rods, a monster puppet with glove hands, and a sheep puppet. One thing I do want to point out that […]
