A test means there will be a grade at the end – and that might take the fun out of this post. Just a couple of questions for you . . .
Remember this bear head in progress from a couple of posts back?
And from even further back, this photo of a couple of unfinished boots on a hat rack?
Stick with me. It will all make sense eventually.
The boots begin life like this.
They are made from paper maché – I didn’t make them though. I bought them this way. But as you can see they definitely need some work at this point. Mainly, it’s that they do not stand up straight. That takes a bit of effort and patience after which comes the painting and finishing.
Next you will see that I have given the little bear his body, arms and legs and he looks like this now.
If you take one small bear and one small boot, what do you get? (No grades remember?)
You get a bear that fits right inside ol’ Santa’s boot.
He can stand in his boot while the boot sits on a table all festive-like for the holidays, welcoming every visitor and keeping an eye open for Santa. (Let’s just hope Santa comes to leave presents and is not in search of a missing boot.)
