Stop Motion Tutorial: Latex Puppet Making

www.michaelmparks.com

A step-by-step guide for the creation of a stop motion puppet with a rubber latex head. Foam latex is generally the material of choice for a flexible stop-motion puppet, but some of us can’t go and bake toxic chemicals in the kitchen stove. Rubber latex isn’t as flexible, but it is an acceptable alternative.
