Thank you to Andy Simmons at Animation Supplies for his help and support and excellent friendly service. He kindly fixed the Magician Armature I bought from them which I do appreciate.
It came in a kit which I had to make up but I had several problems with it. Apparently the problem was with the application of the threadlock – it hadn’t got right into the threaded holes. They kindly fixed the armature and sent me a new bottle of threadlock together with an applicator. They said that it was helpful to them looking at my armature and as a result will now supply applicators with all their armature kits which is great. This will ensure that the threadlock gets right into the threaded holes, guaranteeing a solid, permanent bond.
The armature still has bits of foam stuck to it when I made the body up. This armature will not be used in the animation but will be useful in workshops and events to show how the armature of the puppets are made.
