  1. Hi Tom! I am a big fan of your work. I'm playing around with kinetic art and I was curious which variety / brand of polymer clay you use for your figure heads. Do you have to bake it?

    Thanks!

  2. Hi Tim, I use a mixture of Super Sculpey and Primo (by Sculpey). Yes you have to bake it - I use an old toaster oven.
    Glad you like my work.

  3. Tom, fantastic stuff. Would you recommend a few books that would help me better understand the types of mechanisms you employ in your awesome work? BTW, would love to know what sort of treatment the faces on your characters get. Anything you could share?

  4. I'm glad you like my work Nuggetz.
    Yes, I like this book - it's simple but helps you understand the basic principles -

    They have other books too.
    I sculpt my faces from a special mix of Super Sculpey and Primo. I paint them with acrylic paint. Age them with a watery wash of raw umber, and then lightly sand them. Then they get a coat of paste wax.

  5. Good to know someone is reading this.
    Whenever I have a piece where a head is turning, the head is on a rod that goes down through the figure's body. Down into the base where it is connected to a cam follower, that is moved by the cam. I have to design the body so there's a straight leg to run the rod down through. It's pretty straightforward.
    PS don't go crazy - I like these questions......

  8. Hi Tom, Fabulous work!
    Would you be willing to offer some advise please?

    I make papier mache figures (I use dowling inside for limbs etc) and I would like to develop them a bit more and have them doing some simple movement.

    What kind of motor and power supply would I need to make them move?

    Would be so grateful for any pinters you can offer.

    Thanks, Steve, Essex UK

  10. Hi Tom! Amazing work. Would love to see in person. Do you ever show in SF or do demo's.
    Your work tells a story. So unique and cool.

    1. Hi Alicia, Funny you should ask. I'm organizing a - yet to be announced - automata show for the Spring in SF. I'm working to have 4 pieces completed for it. We hope to have firm dates soon, and I will be posting here and on Facebook all about it.
      Will that work?

  11. Hi Tom, I really love your work! It is very inspiring. I have an idea for a project that will involve two marionettes. Do you have any advice on setting up such a movement? One of the figures will hold a sword and hopefully raise and lower his sword arm. Thanks.
