Mr. Raven and Mrs. Fish
I made them both in art class. Mr. Raven is made from clay, Mrs. Fish is made from different kinds of paper. (explained below)Mr. Raven
I had to edit this picture a bit, because if you take a photo of something from 15 cm with flash on, the photo tends to be much more bright than the original object...
(The basket you can see in the background is also made by me, but it's not my typical craft, I made only two or three of them and this is the only one I have at home. The material is too expensive for me, so I don't think I'll make any once more.)Mrs. Fish
She was meant to be a chinese lantern, but then I realised that the bulb I wanted to use in it was too big, so I gave up the chinese lantern idea and made her Mr. Raven's companion on our monitor.
The skeleton (you can see it in this picture!) is made from carton (not so stiff one). It's quite simple, two wide cones bonded with strips of carton, two strips are also in the middle as a circle to keep the fish's shape. Then I coloured a sheet of tracing paper with green crayons, tore it and glued the pieces onto the skelleton. (They tend to detach one by one from time to time, I should have used different glue. But it still holds together and I always glue them back.) Finished with eyes made from coloured paper and fins and tail made from strips of yellow and blue crepe paper.
