My duck, named P. King Duck, is at the Post Office in Branson! If it weren't a holiday, I'd have him right now!

I gotta be patient for a few more hours!!!

[sitting on the edge of my seat, waiting for my new friend]

Thanks a TON Wanlu, I'll let you know when he makes it home!

Piper's Duck is awesome! Best Duck puppet I ever saw! Now all we need do is put a bag over Piper's head and it's a winner!!!!













Oh Gawd...I'm kidding! Couldn't resist a cheap line...that Orson Well's look scares me now.

The black is a great improvement. Now you can really see the mouth at a distance. I find the 2 things people comment on with my puppets is their eyes and their mouth and you got both of those things down pat!

You are trying to make me buy another puppet aren't you??? Smile

Don't bend the legs at the knee since bird knees bend backwards to mammals. which won't look right on a duck.

When I get some cash, I'll be looking for a puppet.

Good work.

Perhaps for a little extra you can have the sleeve where you insert your arm be a different color? I know everyone will already be aware that it is a puppet, but having that sleeve match the clothing you wear might be a little bit more convincing illusion.

Just a thought.

"bird knees bend backwards..."

Marty,,,it's a CARTOON bird. Donald Duck's knees don't bend backwards nor do Daffy Duck or any other CARTOON Duck..despite Natural Law knees bending backwards are freaky on CARTOONS. Real Ducks also don't Talk and Red Peppers don't wear Hat's.

These are for the most part Vent Type Puppets and do not use 'sleeves' as you enter a gaping Hole in the back. Maybe Wanlu can add some blood and broken bones for the realism. Smile

Just teasing Marty...glad you are here!

Same place...but without great wisdom and the vast knowledge of ancients...which I also wrote the same year I invented rope.

I could tell that you were as old as dirt, but out of respect I decided not to say anything about it.

Yeah, I know it is a cartoon duck, but this duck isn't walking and besides why not be accurate if you can? A straight leg is better than a wrongly bent leg, in my opinion.

The sleeve on the current puppet looks like it was made to match the body, which I think would be better if it matched the vent's sleeve rather than the white that it is.

No disrespect to my older-wiser Café-mate.

Marty,
What if you decided to change outfits? Hopefully the figure will last longer than a shirt! I think the matching sleeve tends to blend into the puppet and simply helps to disquise the entrance point. You could always shorten or roll up the sleeve. Just something to think about. It ends up being a matter of personal preference.

Actually Tom got it on the nose...the sleeve can easily be rolled inside the puppet if you don't feel like using it. Smile

But Marty, your suggestion is noted...thanks Smile

and Doug is not as old as dirt...he's older Smile How else can he know a lot of stuff if he's not.
