May 15th, 2010 · 18 Comments

It was Salvador Dali’s Birthday this week, so we had to celebrate with a couple of projects:

And before we get going with the projects here are some fun links:

Here are our projects:

  1. Dripping Utensils
  2. Long-Legged Beasties
  3. Colorful Collage Clocks
  1. Dripping Utensils:

    This is the picture, “Undersea Pizza Slicers…” that got us celebrating:


    A lot of drawing has been going on around our house just lately and we took a turn with the kitchen utensils:



    Once we had our drawings done we used watercolor crayons and then painted some bright fun utensils…


    And we were done – some dripping utensils.

  2. Long-Legged Beasts:
  3. We Began with plain old plasticiene…


    And then we made literally hundreds of tiny legless beasts:

    And with the help of toothpicks:


    Our beasts got legs:

    And we were done:

  4. Colorful Collage Clocks:
  5. We were gifted with blow markers – ages ago and a very rainy week seemed like the right time to try them… paper-plates were colored:

    Then with a whole heap of little magazine pictures we collaged away:

    Finally some card clock hands were added with split pins:


    And we were done…

    Nobody really wanted to fold theirs!!!


And a day of Dali wouldn’t be right without a couple of books to drool over:



That’s us, apart from a Salvador pizza for supper:


Have Fun!!!
