No problem Heather! There was a School Arts magazine a while back that
featured the Mexican carved lizards and such from the village of
Oaxaca, I believe the teacher did paper mache' replicas. I had my
students create flattened out, highly patterned drawings of lizards,
frogs , turtles, etc...filling the 12 X 18 space(anything with four
legs with or without a tail) with oil pastels on tan construction
paper. They had to be highly patterned and colorful. They then cut
them out carefully and folded the body in the middle lengthwise and
then folded the legs down, toes outward..curled the tails upward,
etc....the effect was that the animals were very realistic and
3/dimensional. They loved them!
