Every procession in the north of the country needs special ingredients: giant puppets made of wire and wooden structure, filled with paper and cloth, covered with plaster and glue, painted with a mix of turpentine, flax, dryer and white lead. The last overcoat is made with lively coloured enamel paints. These giant figures parade and dance in popular festivities of many northern regions, especially in Barcelos.
