So I was at the Green Market/Bazaar in Royal Palm Beach this past weekend, and I was, admittedly, a bit scattered so I attracted the people who want me to make random stuff since I had everything and anything there...the woman in the booth across from me actually suggested that I make some owls, since "everyone's crazy about owls right now". She was a seasoned professional (or whatever you call one with decades of being out in the sun under a booth selling their wares) so I was open to her advice.
Now, I had made owls before, with Vivian...out of some heavy duty cardboard rolls left over from making tutu's, and they were fantastic...but I wanted more!
I just finished a big project for Coca-Cola during which I figured out how to (safely) heat mold PVC and it has felt like the final step in my PVC evolution. I remembered making the owls out of cardboard and thought...hmm...I can heat mold the tops, and make REALLY STURDY owls!
