As for 'when I'm next working on a project' I've only started seriously exploring stop motion since November so right now I've got about 3 projects on the go and a million in the pipeline!! Now all I need is funding, materials, time, space, equiptment....
Ack one day I'll have a film to show for all this work!!
So how long have you been playing with the idea of stop motion? If you're starting out I thoroughly advise getting some upholstery foam and some liquid latex! Its fantastic stuff and gives a really professional, fleshy look to the puppets. You can find loads about it on sma.com.
thank you for the advice and i think that i now have the i guess i would say i had an epifany on how to make my puppets , i was randomly looking over puppets and found a video on youtube for of all things making halloween prostetics insted of making a costly mold for a puppet and castin it, use liquid latex over the clay model cut a seem to remove the clay inset the armature and cover the seem with the latex again
(that was probably boring to read sorry)
i've only recently got into doing stop motion but fell in love with it as a child my mom confused me and told me jack skelington was a computer program
i mainly thought of going into it because i made my own toy stuffed animals out of masking tape and cloth they look alright i should post them i kept playing with whem and put wire into it witch made my toys move giving me the idea for geting into it apologizes for the leanth but hope the story captivated like i felt from the memories

That sounds like a really great idea! You'd have to pad out the space between the latex skin and the armature- maybe cotton wadding? or upholstery foam?
I want to give this a try now!
Be careful what you use with the liquid latex though as it reacts really badly to any oil based products.
Inspired idea though!!
Good Luck with whatever project your on!
m_) Nice to meet you, and welcome to the amazing universe of stop motion animation!!
m_) You'll learn a lot.
