Capturing the human face and form (and especially ‘character’), on canvas or paper, in clay, stone, metal or wood, is certainly one of the most basic and universal of artistic projects. In this spirit, these unique Kits are made to provide an articulated, wooden ‘canvas’ for painting a ‘personality’ in not just 2 or 3, but 4 dimensions (i.e.with gesture and motion!).
Our ‘Character Kit’ provides all the essential materials and information that the kit-maker will need to make a completely original marionette ‘character’ of his or her own conception. Creating the clothing, painting the face and making hair are all addressed in detail to facilitate the process of creation, while keeping the canvas ’empty’ until it receives the unique stamp of the artist.
