Here is the finished puppet!!!!! I'm incredibly happy with it. I painted the foam with acrylic inks as they are flexible and are very rich in colour. I decided to not put a face on it physically as I'm going to animate it digitally over the top of the photos. Sadly, I couldn't colour the shoes, as you have to add the oil paints to the silicone before you apply it, rather than after... yehhhhh.... well I know for next time.
