PuppeteersUnite.com and ProjectPuppet.com are two good sources that contain helpful tutorials about puppet making. Tutorials on these sites range from the initial building of a puppet to enhancing its looks and abilities.
Puppeteers Unite offers tutorials for new puppet makers and includes a list of supplies as well as detailed, step-by-step video and photo instructions for a simple beginner puppet. Project Puppet provides more complex tutorials about adding facial features, arms and posable hands and fingers to the puppet and how to make it more durable and long-lasting. These websites contain patterns, forums and contact information so puppet builders can create their puppet characters with ease and enjoyment.
