Since I can't afford to bye an actual puppet from the film I decided to try and replicate my own. I figured it would be a great way to test my skills and try out new products. With a puppet as complex as Rex I am never going to get a perfect result. This is my process so far, sculpt from Monster clay, make the moulds from polyurethane resin with a metal filler and cast from dragonskin. I used hemp fibre for the fur as i liked the naturally natural look, however, I know they used alpaca fur for the film. This is a work in progress, will hopefully finish soon.
