Hey... Marmalade Kitten, how are you doing? I've checked the "janimation" website quite often and knew that you made progress with "The Emperor's Nightingale". The puppets are beautiful, so delicate and expensive looking! I cannot wait to see the next ones!

Good luck with the TV commercials, Jan. Please, let me know if they appear on the Internet. I'd love to see them!
Keeping in touch,

Hello Jan! You commented on my page:

"...I just wanted to ask a couple of questions. Do you think marionettes such as the Cat, (about 7 inches long), a Dog and various other animal puppets that I occasionally make, would sell in America? I know Britain where I am has a tradition of marionettes, I don't know about America?"

There may be a market for nice quality marionettes in the US, but the rub is that I don't think the average person would consider paying more than $30 - $50 for one. If you can figure out a way to make that cost-effective - please share LOL!

"And, what about starting a marionette group on PuppetHub? I have always been interested in making and using marionettes."

Sure, it sounds like a great idea. If you set one up, I'd be happy to join.

OK, I have several children's series ideas, and have written first episode scripts for these series. Also an idea for an adult puppet series. All mostly muppet-type manipulation. Let's go from there.

hey i really like how technical your puppets are. thanks for inviting me to the strings group!

that's awesome! no, i don't get bored about technical stuff. i want to get into servos actually and more machines like using pulleys and gears. right now i like using springs, but decided i want more control over speed while moving things. do u use physics and math when u make ur puppets? i try to avoid math at all costs, so i just experiment and see what works. i have tons of ideas for really neat puppets but not ready to make them yet bc i wouldn't know how to make them until i learn more about machines.

Congratulations, Jan! The Specsavers video is well done and also funny. Last night, I saw another Specsavers adv on TV in US of A and instantly thought of you and your terrific adv. You are so inspiring, my friend!

Hi, Jan. That's papier mache in layers (newspaper, coffee filters, paper towel soaked in diluted wood glue). I sand it where necessary to make it smooth and then apply acrylic paint.
