Based on my initial sketch, I did these working technical drawings to scale. Sort of a Puppet Head Blueprint to work from so that everything fits together. I did a similar puppet character of Toulouse Lautrec for the Hip Pocket production of VAN GOGH / GAUGUIN in 1987, and although I'm using the same assembly techniques here, these puppets are in a slighly different scale and look. Basically I'm making the patterns up as I go along; adjusting and refining the fittings as they are being put…

My name is Vincent Lam and I am entering my last year studying Model Making at IADT. I have made many different types of models,props, working models,puppets and sculptures through the years. I often use moulds so that I am able to replicate the models I create.I have used plaster,silicon,two part plaster,thixo, latex and vermiculite.I am a bit of a perfectionist and hope I use my creativity to make things that can impress and delight people.
