Some have complained that the book is dated. This is true in only two instances. First, the section on lighting is indeed outdated, though one should have no problem substituting modern lighting instruments. Second, using Plastic Wood to cast heads is now impossible thanks to Plastic Wood's formula being changed over the years; many professionals now use a product called MendAll which works exactly as the original, old-formula Plastic Wood did. I have used MendAll many times and recommend it highly.
For those few who find the Beaton Bible doesn't (somehow) suit their needs, I am happy to recommend books that will. Cheers!
I want to make marionettes again! This book, The Complete Book of Marionettes has patterns that you can actually use and shows you a great control bar, like the one we made for my marionette...
This book even tells you how to make a papier mache head!
I haven't read it entirely, yet, because I have so many other artistic projects I want to get into 3D form. But I love this book.
