       I found these animals in the clearance section one day, and although I wasn't confident that I could make something with them, I decided to buy about 60 of them and attempt something for the sake of art.  First I attached some of them to make a base, and after liking that I made a another similar one.  After seeing these bases next to one another it was easy to plan that I had to connect them considering I was also limited in the quantity remaining.  This is my only project using hot glue sticks as I needed a glue that would immediately dry since I was adhering through the air.  The paper mache is porous so the bond is strong and the water representing material is from a textured shirt.
