Subject: [Puptcrit] Acrylic Teeth Idea


 

I was pondering about implanting individual acrylic teeth into a puppets  
mouth
 and also considering the ability to close its mouth as needed
Then an idea popped into my mind, why not take acrylic finger nails shape  
with
 an emery board , paint an off white and implant these., tops angled  
slightly forward
 and close to lips, the lower slanted back and slighting back from  lips
1. you have the realistic appearance of teeth
2. since they are paper thin, there is no bulk
3. the teeth close like an overbite allowing full mouth closure
4. acrylic nails are extremely cheap, even available by the bag load at  
dollar stores
    compared to true dental sets.
