Eyes are a really important part of a puppet, they are the main communicator with an audience. We went through a lot of different types and choices for eyes; from shiny black to none at all! In the end we settled on simple white and black. Due to the size of the puppets and the fact they are outside meant we did not want to scare children away (well...not to much anyway), so these eyes are more familiar and will make the birds look more friendly.
As well as eyes we assembled the other two hatchlings and are all ready to go for the final rehearsals next week!
