So we start today with a local new years festival.
This was a giant Demon built out of bamboo. We arrived late so I didn't get to see what the thing actually looked like before they lit it. However, here is a picture of one I found on line. No striking demon resemblance but very burnable.
I don't know what was driving me but I just felt like trying this out. There were lots of mistakes and trial and errors along the way but in the end it got coloured and I was pleased with the result. Coincidentally the daughter had the option of bringing something she made over the winter break to school on the her first day back. Honestly, I had not heard anything about this. She took the cat and was very proud of herself. I was feeling pretty good too.
So while making the cat I promised the son that I would make him a dinosaur. I learned a lot while making the cat so the dinosaur turned out a little better, at least in my opinion.
