Brown Bunny skull cast

2 Comments

Some progress on one of the rabbit puppets for Critter Critics

This is a urethane plastic cast from the mold of Brown Bunny’s head.

Backups are important.

Its purpose is to preserve the shape of the head in case something were to happen to the mold, but it’ll also give some context for the bare skull cast.

This guy will be the core of the puppet’s head.

Wires embedded in a urethane plastic core will allow the silicone skin to be “posed” in various expressions.

This was made in the same way as Expresso-Skull, so you can kinda see where this is going.  Depending on how this test goes it might end up as the skull of the actual puppet, or it may just be a draft; we’ll see.  In any case, the teeth did not come out well — I’ll be removing them and drilling a hole in their place, making the teeth in a separate mold from the rest of the head.  The learning process continues.

  1. Brown bunny, hmmm – your real name isn’t Vincent Gallo, is it? ;)

    Will there be nose-wiggling action?

    • Heh, perhaps I should watch “The Brown Bunny” for research?

      I didn’t get as many wires in as I hoped — still getting a feel for the process. Might be able to drill some holes and get a couple more loops in that way, come to think of it. Nose-wires don’t have to be as precisely placed as the eyes…
