We had a couple of little jobs, that all add up into a good few days! These included finishing the beaks - we used paper maché coated with latex paint and varnish. This gave the beaks a eye catching shine and also water proofed them - and as they are out doors in England...it kind of makes sense. We also finished off bits of the fur, leather of the legs and used fibre glass to make the broken pieces of egg shell.
And after all that...and much, much more...it was show time!
