Next I assembled the twenty bodies ( after cutting, painting and inserting links between the 40 leg pieces and 40 arm pieces which only took 3 1/2 days ). Attached the flower heads and then I strung and tied 100 strings to heads, arms and knees. Added 60 leaves and that's it, I was done.
The project only consumed 2 weeks of my life longer than I had anticipated. When it wasn't driving me crazy it was pretty fun.
Delivered the marionettes 2 days before the play opened :)
