The Rotondo Puppet Pattern

The Rotondo Puppet Pattern


Product Description

The Rotondo Pattern is the most popular and versatile in our Forma Series. It includes a puppet pattern and instructions that focus on the puppet's head shape as the fundamental basis of the character (in this case a very round, spherical shape).

Please note that the Rotondo Pattern will guide you through the steps for building a complete puppet where the foam serves as the "skin" of the puppet. (If you would like build a fleece covered version of the Rotondo Pattern, please add The Rotondo Fleece Head Covering Pattern to your order.) The following lists outline the topics and techniques that are covered in the Rotondo Pattern instructions, as well as what is included in the kit.

What will you learn?

  • Basic foam hand puppet construction techniques. The Rotondo Pattern will show you how to build a complete foam-based hand puppet including head, body, arms and hands.
  • A neck-construction technique that will enable a more life-like manipulation of your finished puppet.
  • How to work with reticulated foam ("Scott Foam"), a must-have material used by professional puppet builders.
  • To try your hand at the professional art of "carving" foam.

What is included?

  • A CD from which you may view and print detailed instructions with photos and drawings that take you from character creation to finished puppet. Check out the system requirements for the CD
  • A full-sized printed pattern sheet that doesn't leave you guessing. You'll also enjoy the simplicity of our one-piece patterns.

What are the possibilities?

The possibilities are endless. With a little creativity you can see thousands of characters are waiting to be brought to life!
