Wooonderful Stop-Motion: puppet making Just as every puppet is conceived for a certain type of action, a mould is very much made regarding what you're going to use it for: are you going to cast silicon, or press-mold some clay in it...?As a rule: if you want the cast to be soft, use a hard mould (= plaster…), and if the cast is hard, use a soft mould.This being said, the main thing with mould is patience: you might have to redo them quite a few time before you reach perfection (or at least something decent) Once you have your platicine sculpture ready, dip the part you don’t want to cast right now (we’re doing a several part mould here) in clay (=loam: the one used to make pots)

Famous claymation cartoons like Gumby and Wallace and Gromit have made the artistic form popular.

Dr. Grob's Animation Review Director: Tim Burton & Mike JohnsonRelease Date: September 23, 2005Rating: ★★★★Review: The shy Victor and Victoria are forced by their unsympathetic parents to marry each other. Luckily, they actually like each other, but then Victor accidentally marries the deceased Emily who takes him to a world underground, while Victoria is forced to marry the evil lord Barkis… ‘Corpse Bride’ is a typical Tim Burton film, especially in its art direction, in its 19th century, gothic setting, in its dark humor, and in its jolly portrait of death.
