Class (or House Pride Item): Reducio Challenge
Project Name: Shrunken Owl
While helping Professor McGonagall with the acceptance letters for this fall, I heard a crash from the other room followed by a loud squeaking hoot! I ran to investigate and my silly owl Archemedes had knocked over a Shrinking Solution and managed to drench himself! Well, I couldn't rightly delay Quinn's letter just because of that, so I figured this would be a good time to practice my Reducio Charm on the parchment. Being a good sport, Archemedes headed right out with the letter, and no worries, but the time he came back he was rightly sized again.
My little troublemaker! I used white suede for his body, and wool thread called Snow Melt from Dragonflylotus Designs for his outline. It's a really pretty mottled grey color.
My shrunken letter. I use vanilla extract to get the color right. There's a sewing needle for size reference.
