There are a couple dozen of these animal cracker containers sitting in my closet, and I just found plaster bandages to be the perfect treatment for giving them a brand new finish. It only took a few minutes to dampen strips and then smooth them on and I LOVE the new super white finish.
And to complete these stack able shapes? Some clever readers on Instagram suggested Lego heads and totem poles. I can also see painted Frankenstein, or Picasso or cubism heads. All I know for sure is that I will apply the bandages myself, and then let students take it from there. I’ve kinda fallen for the super smooth finish that I know is possible if you carefully cut and smooth the bandages. Besides that, applying them and seeing the transformation is downright fun. But that’s my own secret.
