Humpty Dumpty is sitting on the wall April 11th, 2007

Humpty Dumpty is sitting on the wallI am glad that I decided to paint Humpty’s coat onto the shell, his legs provide just enough balance to let him sit upright and I love how he turned out…His arms, legs and hat are are made from cardboard and his bowtie is ribbon with thread wrapped around the centre.

I made the wall from the end of an egg carton lid, the side of the wall in the photo was supposed to be the back because I thought that the moulding of the egg carton would look out of place and the other side is nicely square but as it happens the back turned out better than the front.

When I first thought of doing a humpty egg I was going to paint him and then let him have a little fall and put him back together but once I started making him I realizes that I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to deliberatly crack him, just knowing that I could put him back together is enough.

    I love your Humpty Dumpty and am thankful you spared him from the fall! Thanks too for all those great pictures from the egg painting. It sounds like so much family fun while encouraging creativity.
