Ari Bari began a paper mâché project a few weeks ago and it’s finished now for all to see. Nice work! It gives me some ideas of faux taxidermy I might make with my kids for their rooms.

As promised, a picture of my mounted paper mâché unicorn head. I love the whimsy it adds to a room!

My ‘cereal box’ robots from Day one of Art and Design week at Maker Camp. I didn’t have any empty cereal boxes or other boxes lying around, so when I watched the hangout, I used their idea of the coffee cans. Mine is an italian waiter – he actually is very fun for holding candles in the palms of his “hands.” This project was superfun!

We had a blast hanging out with Lumi’s’ Jesse Genet. She posted this for a little added inspiration to get you making.

Print your own galaxy with Inkodye! Here’s a nifty project we did using Inkodye that shows you how to use multiple colors to create a space effect.

Maker Anastasia Surguladze has posted some great stuff. Like this lamp and 3D drawing:
