Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Foamie / craft foam and Mirek Trejtnar's class


I am currently working on a latex faced puppet, and the mould wasnt perfect 
so I have some imperfections in the latex face. I was going to try and patch 
them up by filling them in with more liquid latex and then letting it dry. 
One ear has a large chunk out of it and I'm not certain if theres another 
way I could fix it. Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated,

Sincerely;
Darlene
