I learned through out this semester how to create puppets with a guest speaker named donavan. He taught us to form the base of your puppet with cardboard or paper depending on the size you want your puppet to be, then having to paper mache it two times. after your puppet is dried up, you can paint it to how you want it to be.
I was also taught how to properly use clay when we made our clay masks. We learned the different types of clay forms and how we should handle them within those specific forms. We also learned helpful clay techniques to better form our clay masks like, the pinching technique, where you pinch the clay to make thin even walls, the coil technique, where you use rolled out ropes of clay, and the slab technique, where you use thin layers of clay. Once you're finished shaping your clay, you can put it into the kiln to make it bone dry.
