Aardman – Pirates! Stop-Motion Puppet Painting

I worked as a member of the model making team at Aardman Animations on their major feature film Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists. For this production I specialised in paint, working on Peg Leg Hastings (voiced by Lenny Henry) and a few of the background pirate characters.  Contrary to popular belief, these puppets are not made of plasticine, but are a fully armatured combination of latex foam, resin and silicone.  All of these different materials require unique inks/paints/pigments and as many methods of application, whilst maintaining continuity in the paint finish.
