This was my first time working with foam, or creating a puppet of any kind. This alien puppet was made with the instruction of the BJ Guyer Foam Puppet tutorials, after carving the basic shapes into a block of mattress foam, I pre-painted it with pax-paint, and covered it bit by bit in pigmented silicone. I sculpted teeth and spikes with super sculpey, and painted the cured silicone with alcohol paints.
This puppet was created in one week, for the NYU thesis short "Mushrooms" Written and Directed by Julio Ramirez

I've also included my original sketch for the design of the puppet.IMG_0498.pdfIMG_0492.pdfIMG_04891.pdfAlien Sketch.pdf
