PAINTED PUP­PETS

Il­lus­tra­tor Jock Mooney on per­fect­ing the jig dolls We bought the jig dolls from pup­pet-maker Bernard Pil­grim, but they needed to be adapted to fit the look that we wanted. I mod­i­fied the heads of both Polly and the soldier so that they matched the painted close-ups I had al­ready cre­ated for the film. Garry Rut­ter added the wigs and made the var­i­ous ac­ces­sories, then dressed them. He also mod­i­fied the jig boards, so rather than be­ing worked while sit­ting down, they could be op­er­ated with one hand whilst stand­ing.
