SPITTING IMAGE PUPPET RESTORATION
This is an original Margaret Thatcher Spitting Image puppet head which came to me from The National Puppetry Archive collection.
The puppet head was in a pretty terrible state before being rescued by Michael. She had been exposed to a lot of direct sunlight which is the worst conditions for these puppets.
I restored Mrs Thatcher to be sympathetic to its authentic condition, maintaining the original features and paint work and ageing the restored areas appropriately.
