Oyster Puppets

Projects Making

More projects from 2015. This time oysters for that famous scene with the Walrus and the Carpenter.

Half-finished puppets showing glueing process

Each oyster is constructed with mattress foam, shaped with scissors, and glued with gel contact adhesive (a.k.a Barge glue). Painted with acrylic paint, then given eyes and little boots.

Finished oyster puppets

Each puppet was then operated by a simple rod. Very quick. Very effective.
