Might come in handy when I need a shifty character.
This one is a pretty basic toggle directly attached to the back of eyes on a pivot.
It took some trial and error to see what would work but was really interesting to try of lots of different things until I got the movement I was after.
Whilst I was playing with eyes Lyndie was trying out a type of javanese puppet hand she's not made before to see how it worked. it's a solid piece with fingers joined. it's strong but also quick (comparatively) to carve because the thumb is inline with the rest of the hand.
Lesson of the day: Even after 50 years in puppetry there are still new and exciting things to try for the first time.
