Yikes, I didn't think about that being a problem when I posted about the 
solution I was so excited about.
I hope Mr. Panabecker won't see it as infringment.
I did give credit though, and I'm not marketing the object, neither do I 
claim it as my own.

I guess if you look at it in a certain commercial way, yes, I provided a 
written proof that I have used another's method, albeit much more primitive 
and used for a different puppet part.
Don't we all work from past achievements of our peers?

A big part of me can't understand why anyone would keep a technique as 
secret (not the case here) or protect it against others using it. I share 
all my techniques fully. In workshops I teach the same ones I use for 
building for my customers. Some consider it as training your competition, 
and therefore a bad move. I don't see it that way. The more the merrier! We 
all do our own thing. What makes a character unique is the way it looks 
(design) and is performed (specific skills).


What makes a technique part of everyone's toolbox, and when does that happen 
really?
I'll repost the question as a separate Thread...
