Customre brought in 3 old chinese skin puppets. These ae jointed marionette type figures with articulated arms and legs, made of translucent mule skin (not unlike a thinck, heavy vellum). The figures are supported and moved by long bamboo sticks. She would like them to be framed in a small stage setting so that they can be manipulated from outside the box. I have most of the engineering figured out, but one problem remains. how can I support the individual sections of the figures so they remain flat (they curl in response to humidity changes and gravity), and flexible. I figure I will have to back each section of the puppets by sewing them to some kind of transparent support material. Does anyone out there have suggestions on how to proceed with this plan or another?
