  • 07:15 At the puppet kitchen, treating the wood witch’s arms to look like tree branches instead of aluminum and dowels. #
  • 08:27 Hands are sculpted. I’ve restricted the elbows so they don’t spin around like a zombie’s. #
  • 08:43 Adding strips of mache to the arms to give a treebark texture. I’m getting a little tired of having my hands in goo. #
  • 09:43 Finished the bark treatment on the arms. Oddly, I can’t find the hair dryer with which I usually speed the drying process. #
  • 09:45 After some thought, I’m going to papier-mache the wood-witch’s face instead of casting in neoprene. It’ll be significantly lighter this way. #
  • 11:40 And I’m finished with the top part of the face. The bottom mold is very small and should go really fast. But first, lunch! #
  • 11:51 Just passed a mob of high school girls who were screaming “Vote for Obama!” They were obnoxious yet cute. #
  • 14:00 Just looked at wildly over-priced typewriters. Sigh. #
  • 14:48 Woot! The upper face came out of the mold beautifully. #
  • 15:17 I just listened to Tanuki Kettle, by Eugie Foster, on PodCastle. Excellent story and nice reading. tinyurl.com/tanuki Recommended! #
  • 17:57 Car on fire at 4 and 2. I called 911 and the firemen came so fast that they must have already been called. #
  • 18:50 Trying to pick stone witch puppet up from rehearsal. We can’t find it. Makes me nervous. #
  • 19:01 Found the witch. Whew. #
  • 20:00 Back to the papier mache mines. Mmm… goo. ##
  • 21:11 Switching from wood witch face to stone witch arm. #
