365 Day 31

finger puppet series unveiled!
That is my friend Andi modeling some finger puppets. Andi is always a willing accomplice and she is a big Arto-fan. Today is Andi's birthday.


Here it is -- I am calling the series "Tookies". An individual puppet would be a "Tooky". This is my latest series for Art-o-mat.














I was planning on using a small MDF block as the box weight (the same ones I use for the "Penciled In" series) but the bottom edge of the puppets makes the box bulge with the block. So, plan B -- four pennies taped to the inside flaps. The boxes have to have an evenly distributed weight in order to vend well in the machines -- especially in the older antique machines like mine.














This is a Tooky unwrapped, with its tissue paper and information insert. The info includes the address to this blog.














A Tooky -- ready for fun!
