Hi Sean,

I really enjoyed your tutorial. Very concise and clear with great pictures. I make puppets like how I cook- I get the general idea by reading the recipe and then I improvise. There are no real rules to puppetry, from what I understand ( I hate rules). I made my first foam puppet from on-line tutorials such as yours. I discovered that you can also paint foam directly and you don't need to fabricate it it you don't want. Watered down acrylic works well, although it does suck up a lot of paint. Instead of using barge glue, or rubber cement, I used a hot glue gun for all the gluing. I wore cotton gloves to prevent burning my fingers. This is much safer and quicker than inhaling the toxic fumes from the rubber cement. Keep up the great work!

Thanks again,
