Tail, teeth and a face

Yesterday I got the tail added to the standing Monkey. It is peeking over his shoulder and balances his extended arm. The Hare got his two front teeth, courtesy of a broken Muscle shell. They will be more apparent once the Hare itself is painted. The thinking Monkey got his face. It will be further worked out but it gave him a lot of life immediately.


Frankenstein Friday

Chupacabra?'s just the littlest Murph and his favorite stuffed animal. After a satisfying meal, he likes to parade around the house with his number one toy of the day.

A lovely weekend to all!

paper animals

They are coming along. I made some big moves yesterday, although from the photos it is hard to tell. The standing monkey still needs a tail, I will try and get that done today. I did a lot of adding the day before so yesterday was all subtraction. now it is all about refining and getting ready to add color. It is tempting to leave them white. But I am itching to add color to them and not safe color either, I want some bold Pop color. I think there might be some teeth on the rabbit too--pointy porcelain teeth! I love that they don't look or feel like they are paper. They are surprisingly sturdy and strong but very light in weight.
