meet bucky

Over the weekend I picked up a cardboard deer trophy on clearance at Urban Outfitters. (These aren’t available on the UO site, but they are available here plus they have rhinos and buffalo.) Anyway, I purchased the deer trophy thinking I could personalize it to make it more original and of course fancier. I modpodged newspaper on one side of the cardboard and painted the other side a robin’s egg blue. This process actually took a few days. The most time consuming part was triming the newspaper around the pieces because I wanted to still be able to see the corragated edges. For the actual trophy plaque I attached wood veneer and stained it. I love the way Bucky turned out—very graphic and bold with the subtle blue touches. Now I am trying to decide if I need the rhino to accompany Bucky on the wall.
