Ping Pong's Puppet Workshop

August 22, 2001

Wow, our shop is almost empty! As of today, we've delivered Perseus, Danae, Andromeda, the Graeae Sisters, Atlas, Polydectes, Medusa, and the masks of Posiedon and Athena. All that's left is the Sea Monster - and the entire cast of Perseus - Hero of Ancient Greece will be finished.
A future page will show finished pictures of the whole cast, but we've got a few things to finish up first.

Last night, Bill and Marty cast the mold of Quilly the Quail's head, starting production on that show. ..and the beat goes on!

Polydictus' necklace

A closeup of Polydectes' necklace. Attention to detail is one of our points of pride.

closeup of Medusa's beam

A closeup of Medusa's beam hanging from her stand. If you look closely, you can see the little switch that controls the lights in her eyes. The horizontal rod on the back of the beam (to the right in the picture) holds up her wings.

Polydictus' Throne

Polydectes' Throne. We didn't build it, but we think its neat, and wanted you to see a picture of it. Once painted and covered in its royal fabrics, it will be a nice addition to the set.
