Making Paper Puppets

  1. 1. Making Articulated Paper Puppets For Stop-Motion Animation
  2. 2. Materials: ● Heavyweight Paper ● Pencil ● Scissors ● Markers & Paint ● Hole Punch ● Brads/Fasteners
  3. 3. What makes a great puppet? ● Bright colors ● Contrast ● Interesting silhouette ● Many options for movement ● Unique details
  4. 4. Making your puppet: Step 1. Plan your character with a sketch.
  5. 5. Step 2. Decide which body part will be the main section that other pieces are attached to.
  6. 6. Step 3. Create limbs, wings, fins, tentacles, tails, etc. Remember to make these pieces as LARGE as you can!
  7. 7. Step 4. Decorate each piece with markers, paint, and colored pencils. Does your puppet have: fur, feathers, scales, hair, or any other texture details?
  8. 8. Step 5. Layer pieces to see how they will fit together best. Hole punch where they overlap.
  9. 9. Step 6. Carefully attach pieces together with fasteners. Gently test all the ways your puppet can move.
  10. 10. Puppet Examples
  11. 11. How can we make our puppets move? We use stop-motion animation. It works by using many images which illustrate objects with very gradual changes. When we speed the images up, the objects look as though they are moving on their own! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYLuzKSbfC8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pw80ki6kc-k
