More penguins. Not sure I needed to post more. I know it says six and there are only five, but one baby departed early. I think I have made over 30 penguins, and I try to get a little better with every batch. If I do more, I think I need to bend a head or two!
When I posted the last bunch, my best friend mentioned she had to get a present for her niece. There were three. A friend from Vietnam found me. We haven’t talked in probably 15 years. He asked what I have been doing, and I sent him photos of my paper mache stuff around the house. He loved the penguins. There were three more.
The lesson I learned with these is don’t put a sculpture in a box when the bottom is not closed. I went to the post office to get boxes to mail them, carrying one to make sure they fit inside. I left the penguin in the box, walked outside. As I opened the door, the penguin fell out the bottom and shattered his foot. Back to the operating table!
