Portrait marionettes made based on a photo

Portrait marionettes made based on a photo

Want to have your own puppet, or portray one of your loved ones?

No problem, we will be happy to make you a puppet according to the photo ...
In our portfolio, you will find small doubles of famous personalities and puppet enthusiasts. According to specific requirements, we use different technologies/production methods. Some puppets are the work of carvers, others are produced using 3D technology. It's up to you what you choose.

Technology

It is already mentioned above that we have two options to choose from. But which one to choose? It's up to you, someone prefers wood, someone prefers new technologies. There is no need to write about woodcarving, but puppets made using 3D technology are a big unknown to many people. Find out more on our blog. For simplicity, we will refer to them as 3D puppets.

Both options have their pros and cons. We will be happy to help you with the selection, but the basic parameters are:

Production time

  • 3D puppet: standard several weeks, production can be shortened individually for an additional fee
  • Carved: up to several months depending on the processing time

Processing level

  • 3D puppet: more accurate anatomy, less weight, better mobility
  • Carved: wood is quality material, the degree of processing depends on the amount of investment

Price

  • 3D puppet: the basic price starts at EUR 832 the price will be affected by the size and, for example, whether the puppet has an opening mouth or moving eyes
  • Carved: a simple stylized puppet costs as little as EUR 668 the price is influenced by the degree of processing and mobility. The average price of a 3D puppet in the quality is about EUR 1900

Communication

  • 3D puppet: more frequent communication and the possibility of sending partial photos
  • Carved: Once the puppet is ready, we'll send you a photo for final approval

 

Production progress

First, we will discuss the production technology (3D puppet, carved). Then we will arrange a specific specification. That is the level of processing, mobility, controlled elements. We will still need photos of the person from you as much as possible. The better photos we have available, the more faithful the final look will be.

Before production begins, you must order the puppet and pay at least half of the final price.

Basic steps in making a 3D puppet

Beforehand, we model the head and body according to the submitted photos and the agreed specification. Our modelers have great talent and the appearance of the puppet with the pattern is really true :) The following is the printing of the puppet parts on a 3D printer. We then manually process paint and assemble all parts into a puppet. We make hair and hairstyles according to photos.

Once the puppet is assembled, it's time to dress it. We choose textile materials according to what kind of clothing you wanted, with great emphasis on aesthetics. At the same time, we make sure that the puppet costume is sewn so that the puppet does not interfere with movement.

Then we tie the puppet to the rocker, test its mobility, do an exit check, call or write to you and agree on how to hand over the puppet.
