The most difficult thing in life is picturing something in your head, then actually making it happen. Snag 1: fabric mache did not work (I blame damp basement, and my inability to add the appropriate amount of water to plaster). That’s fine. Snag 2: spray foam is super cool to work with, but results in a look that is very un-melanosome-like. Will keep it in the toolbox though for use in the future.
This newest barbule was inspired late Sunday night after a disastrous session with R (why won’t my code work?!?). I have high hopes for this one. After all, third time’s a charm.
