Having a go at Arm rods with posable hands

 Hi all, I found this cute tartan fleece material and knew I had to make two little Scottish puppets!

So  the past few days I have been playing with the idea of the posable hands and arm rods for these two puppets...... I found this great tutorial which I am following for the hands  http://www.projectpuppet.com/servlet/Page?template=arm-rods-tutorial

A little more time consuming but I'm hoping they will help add some more character to the puppets. This is my first attempt at making these so I guess it will be a little trial and error..... lucky there's such great tutorials out there to help! For the arm rods Im using the ones my Dad & uncle made for me......

 they were made to slip over the wrist and do a great job for that!  Dad recently gave me a whole stack more he'd and I have still more coming so to make some suit the posable hands Ive just pulled the bent end out and wired it onto the hand support. I think it will work well :D

One done three to go..... Ill keep you all posted, Happy puppeting

and a last thought
