Custom Latex Puppets

Our custom latex puppets make highly expressive, realistic characters with a life like skin texture. Each latex head is individually sculpted from clay and cast by hand with a high level of craftsmanship. We make latex hand puppets with movable mouths as well as custom rubber head glove puppets. We can set in handmade eyes and teeth, and add hair, wigs and any kind of clothing. Latex puppets are ideal for when a high level of detail is required. They are also very versatile and can achieve a huge range of different facial expressions. As our latex puppets are custom made to order, they can be made to any design you can imagine – if you can dream it, we can make it! Our bespoke latex puppets are UK made in our workshop here in Leith, Edinburgh.

How our latex puppets are made

We start by making a clay sculpt of your character. We then make a strong platercast of the character and use this as a mould. We then pour the latex into the mould to create the latex puppet head. This is then cleaned up, finished and painted.
