"Do It Yourself! Foam Latex Puppetmaking 101" is a one hour instructional video that shows the entire process of turning an original sculpt into a camera-ready, foam latex puppet that is specifically designed for animating.


An example of our foam latex puppets...George Harrison plays his sitar! (Note the 4 fingers - "because four is funnier than five")

My dvd was featured on kk.org's Cool Tools website, Sept. 9, 2005. The editor and co-founder of Wired Magazine was kind enough to review DIY-Foam Latex Puppetmaking 101 in a very positive, glowy way. Thanks to that, over 20,000 copies sold to date! Thanks so much!

For three years, Kathi and her team of expert puppet makers created the main characters for MTV's "Celebrity Deathmatch" at Zung Studio in New York City. Click here to take a look inside our old shop and see the team in action! This claymation style, weekly, stop-motion animation tv series also featured a 300-member audience that Kathi made in her mom's garage. You're welcome to visit my old workshop...

Her work besides "Celebrity Deathmatch" includes making puppets for Nike commercials, Pampers, Crunch, McDonald's, doing work for Nickelodeon, HBO, MTV Germany, and other various independent projects. She made puppets for the Thanksgiving Special episode of the "Bernie Mac Show" for the Fox Television Network. She worked on the "Davey and Goliath Snowboard Christmas Special", doing puppet work and a few voices too!

Some scenes from the DVD...






Kathi shows you how to design your sculpt in a way that allows for easy mold-making.







She takes you through each step to make a durable Ultracal mold from your sculpt, providing the tightest seam possible.







You'll learn how to fashion a basic but strong, fully animatable, aluminum wire and pro-poxy armature with foot tie-downs.







Kathi teaches you how to run a batch of foam latex to cast your puppet.







Then, she shows you how to de-mold, trim, seam and prepare your puppet for painting.






Finally, Kathi shows you how to give your puppet a long-lasting paint job and have a finished product that's as seamless as possible and camera-ready!


"Pssst! Pass it on...Foam latex puppets are more flexible, durable, and more professional looking than clay..."
