Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Info about enamels


Masks being part of puppetry or not depends entirely on whom you
speak with. It's kind of like Cartoons being part of puppetry or
not. In my opinion, and for all those who disagree I would say let's
agree to disagree, Mask work is part of puppetry.  It is in essence
taking an inanimate object, the Mask, and animating it to create a
story and character for your audience. Just because the face does not
have moving parts does not make it less of a character any more than
a puppet with a static face.

Of course this is just my opinion and you will have other with different

Just my two cents.  I would love to see more information about this part
of the Art form discussed on pupcrit.
