My friend gave me a papier mache owl a few months ago and I finally got around to finishing it. It took me a while to mull over how I wanted my owl to look.
My inspiration came from this camel . Many years ago I was driving down a busy street and stopped at a light. I saw a zebra statue that made me look twice. It was actually one of the life-size camels on display throughout the city painted like a zebra!!! How creative!
I made black and white gelli printed deli paper then painted the back of the owl white and black for the face and tummy. This was so the black would show up on the white background and vice-versa.
I just LOVE my penguin owl! I smile every time I look at him.
