nerdchild asked: Hello! I just wanted to say, I love your puppets! I enjoy experimenting with puppet making at home, and I have two specific questions. the first question is, do you have a good glue you use for gluing foam? So far everything I've tried is either too stiff, melts the foam, or doesn't stick. The second question I have is also glue related. I made a rod puppet recently and for the life of me I can't get the hand (painted Sculpey) to stick to the rod (coat hanger). Do you have any suggestions?
glad you like my work, , the glue i use (as well as most puppet builders) for foam rubber is a contact cement called barge, its rather toxic and should only be used in a well ventilated situation,
as for sculpey , i think you need to bake the rod into the hand , i don’t have much experience working with that material though.
