Here is a short tutorial on making a Coro figure...No matter what the figure is, the work flow is close to the same.

 

* Find a piece of clip art

* Project it on a door or wall and trace in on butcher paper

* Add in the talking elements by duplicating the mouth, chin, etc.

* Mark for lights

* Put paper over pre-cut coro piece and use scratch awl to make holes

* Stuff with lights

* The body of the figure is on one channel, mouth (up) on one channel, mouth (down) on another channel, etc.

 

It's not too hard once you get the hang of it...

 

Here's a few samples...

* Put paper over pre-cut coro piece and use scratch awl to make holes, or a cheap $7 Wal-mart soldering iron. Makes quick work if using Coro. (Make sure there is adequate ventilation)

* Stuff with lights

* The body of the figure is on one channel, mouth (up) on one channel, mouth (down) on another channel, etc.
