Subject: [Puptcrit] Blacklight puppetry translucent/transparent/ opaque

Hi all,

In the time I am not devoting to not being Heather Henson :), I am
preparing to work on some black light puppets (UV reactive that is). I
have gathered a number of materials here and there over the past 3 years
including reactive yarn, cloth, plastic bits, plastic cups, thick
plastic shot glasses, lacing, adhesive and non-adhesive vinyl and
acrylic rod/tube and sheet.  I also have a number of glow in the dark

The esthetic I want to achieve is a lot of
translucent/transparent/opaque materials and use of negative space to
create these puppets.   I want to set up a shop to cut, bend, fold,
spindle mutilate, etc. the acrylic materials. I have been looking at the
Delvie's acrylic web site and there are a number of options for
equipment to do this work.  I have a dremel, but I haven't used it much.
I am wondering what equipment would be necessary for setting up the
basic shop? Has anyone worked with these materials and what advice do
you have?  

Yes, I am considering weight as well as esthetics.

Best wishes!
