Paper Mache – Be Afraid to go to the Bathroom
Now that Wilburine is done it is time to start working on my next fish. On Facebook a after seeing my work, a friend shared a video of a shark toilet seat.
While I am not an air brush person, I loved the idea. Off to the store to buy a wood toilet seat.
Here is the original image from Akin Vong that was one of my inspirations for Wilburine. I took photos of the toilet seat and played with photoshop.
Today I bought a 2x4' wood panel, braced the back and mounted the seat. The braces will be hidden in the head. One change from the original idea was to place the seat in the normal orientation with the hole on the bottom. I am not sure exactly what fish I will base this on but many have the entrance to the gullet on the lower jaw.
It became apparent that handling a 2x4' panel with a six pound toilet seat is a challenge. I found an old student grade easel and mounted the panel to it. The bottom tray is removable once completed. The panel is screwed on but could be removed. The funny part is the panel costs more than the easel.
