Make Talking Puppets #ArtTuesday

Make enchanted talking puppets. via instructables

Make talking puppets and enact your own play following this tutorial!

Step 1: What you will need:

– Couple of soft toys to act as your characters.

Coloured construction paper, foam board or cardboard, ruler, cutter, tape and pencil to build the scenery. Conductive thread, Electric Paint, needle and scissors to make the connections.

– Computer, Touch Board, SD card reader, Lipo

– Battery (or USB cable) and Speaker to make the toys talk!


Step 2: Before you start:

Make a sketch of your idea, and also a drawing of how to connect audio clips to the Touch Board and the toys.

This project re enacts a scene from the film Napoleon Dynamite. You can see that the sketch is based on the reference still from the film I found online. I also found audio clips of the scene, which I separated into a dialogue. Each line of the dialogue is going to be connected to a separate electrode on the Touch Board via conductive thread.
