A HAND BUILT 'AVIATOR' MARIONETTE PUPPET
By award winning & nominated puppet creator/sculptor Robin Ainslie-King.

These puppets are cast from original designs by the sculptor. They have a wood dowel skeleton, hand cast and hand painted faces, hands & feet - all cast in SG2000 polyester resin (a very light but strong medium) - The heads are now cast beautifully hollow, with increased detail.
After face detailing, the faces are coated in a UV protective matt acrylic varnish and the eyes are glossed to a high 'glass like' shine.

- THIS RUN IS LIMITED TO ONLY FOUR PUPPETS !!!

They have brown felt flying caps c/w little aviator goggles and felt suits with fabric sleeves & trousers - The fabric I use although will be in the same family of colours, may not be the same design as in the ad photographs.
Each puppet stands about (approx) 500mm tall.
They are articulated at the neck (allowing some side to side movement) shoulders, elbows, wrists, then hips & knees. The hips have a brass slotted screw & the knees an alloy knee strip to increase the puppets usable life.

The puppets now come with my new crucifix control bar system, making manipulation much easier!


Each puppet is monogrammed under the clothes, photographed and certified original by Robin Ainslie-King’s own records.
These puppets are sold as theatrical props & collectible artistic pieces -
THEY ARE NOT CHILDREN'S TOYS.

I've changed the quality of the string I use, allowing all puppets to be sent fully strung.

The puppet you purchase will be practically identical to the example photo's (cast from the same moulds) but all those puppets have now been built and sold.

NOTE: The brown striped fabric used in the sample photographs may or may not be used in the puppet you purchase, due to it being harder to get hold of!

All messages must be via the Etsy Messaging board and NOT to my email - I get a lot of emails & would hate to miss your message.

PLEASE NOTE: Each puppet is thoughtfully built from scratch, so please EXPECT DELIVERY WITHIN 28 DAYS (from payment completion) - I cannot realistically dispatch them any earlier no matter what the hurry is, resins, glue & paint's got to dry! and I don't rush my art, sorry.
I except payment through PayPal, credit card, debit card, or Etsy Gift Card.

I have puppets worldwide in collections inc. Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, Sidney, Zurich, Bath and many other world cities and states.
