Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Another option to Plastic Wood


Thanks, Les:

I'll check these out....

I recognize ALUMILITE.   Dave Herzog used this material to cast a few heads 
for Phillip Huber when Phillip was creating the marionette cast for a video 
rock opera. (Normally, as I understand it, Phillip does his own work, but in this 
case time was against him.) 

Dave sent me some info on this stuff but as of now, have yet to try it.

Thanks so much for your input...
Fred
