Class : Care of Magical Creatures
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: He was gooD Elf



So the geekery in my house just doesn’t stop.  I felt that we needed something a little crazy so I crafted us a house elf.



He’s made of paper mache with bones made of tin foil duct tape and plastic shopping bags.
I mixed all of the flesh tones from your standard red, yellow, blue white and sepia acrylic paints. And put layers and layers to try and make him look more alive.  Then I sponged on tacky glue to make him look more fleshy and less paint-y.
But finally I individually seated  eyelashes .I really think that’s what made him look real.  Now all he needs is a name…

Any suggestions?
