Springs for Marionettes

Hello Stan Winston School! I've recently taken Scott Land's course on Mastering marionettes. I've made a few with counter-weighted mechanisms, but I'd like to learn how to make them spring-loaded, the way Scott Land does his. unfortunately, I can't seem the find a spring that works for me. Any suggestions?

    I like to get spring assortments that have a combination of compression, extension, and torsion springs in different sizes and strengths.  That way you can try a few options to find the right match.  You can get them off Amazon or often in your local hardware store.

    You are definitely capturing the classical storybook look, the ones from my nightmares. So many possession shows with the classic styling.
