I need to send National Geographic a thank you for sending me down this path! I really had a great time coming up with these guys. I still have one more technique I want to try, but other things call for a while. These guys are about 13" long and 8" tall. It took me 2 days to design the 7" Mahout, aka elephant trainer. I tried fabric heads, but didn't like the outcome, so messed with a press mold face. Much better. The other challenge was the umbrellas, which were very prevalent in online photos. I woke up at 1 AM with the solution! Again, one of the things I love most: finding ways to accomplish what I want. Now am ready to take my notes and write into pattern, and it's also time to get into the garden chores...then one more pachyderm... oh and I need to work on my Steampunk Witch costume for the Art Thing show next month! So much to do so little time!
