"I live within the sage and sun. Many a mortal has tried to seek me out but only those with the
purest of heart will find me. Those precious souls are invited into my burrow and offered
the finest cactus tea and enlightening conversation" - Jack Straw
The Jack Straw Marionette Art Kit
The Jack Straw Marionette Art Kit is an introduction to the world of puppetry that dates back to the time of the Egyptians. Jack Straw is a North American Jackalope. This rarely seen mythical creature inhabits the southwest and is a highly intelligent being. Little is known about the trickster Jackalope and rumors abound.
This kit contains all of the parts to build Jack Straw. A few additional tools and materials are required. These additional items include a box cutter or wood carving knife, a hammer, a screw-driver, super glue or wood glue, scissors, linseed oil or acrylic paints, dust mask, work gloves & safety glasses. To mount the wall bracket you will also need a power drill and 3/16” bit.
The kit includes a set of directions and there is also an instructional video below.
Note that product images are shown for reference only. Being made from natural materials, each marionette will have its own characteristics and anomalies found in wood. i.e. variations in grain, tone, knots and texture.
A few additional items to note. This kit is a fairly delicate art piece. Sharp tools are required to assemble and some simple woodworking experience is necessary. The kit does contain small parts that could be a choking hazard if swallowed. Small children should enjoy this piece from a distance. Take care and many blessings.
