I have always felt that Punch was a menace - he kills his baby, his wife, the policeman, and finally even the Devil himself! I decided to put Judy in charge, and transformed Punch into a marionette that Judy can control. The figures are OOAK sculpts in polymer clay over wire and foil armatures, painted in acrylics, and the tent is made of papier mache over a wire armature. The costumes are constructed from dupioni silk, tulle, metallic lace, with wigs made of mohair and silk. The hats and portions of their costumes are made of a fabric sandwich consisting of dupioni silk, angelina and silk fibers, tulle, with an overlay of free motion embroidery.
