Finally completed but still needs to be handled gingerly......

18 Feb 19

    Finally finished this Lick -n- Smoke 'em Shroom's computer mouse.  Here hoping the shrooms won't fall off.  Not your run of the mill mouse either.  I hope that I will be the only one to handle my project for fear of my  shrooms snapping off again.

The Shroom's keep breaking off but this is how far I've gotten


                 Placed some of Aleene's Tacky glue around one stem for this stubborn shroom.  Needless to say it will need to be held gingerly.  Never again will I create something with that small or thin of diameter to connect one item to another.

Still working on project 1

17 Feb 19

    Still working on project 1.  Sanded most of the shroom's with the exception of the top base of which they are attached to.  Three more shroom's broke off.  Found that super glue works but you'll have to hold it in place.  I found it best works (as little as a bubble forms) to let the glue sit for a little while before placing item back on.
     I did end up having to drill a hole (dremel tool) to be able to insert the cable; per discussion with Professor Asmuth a few weeks ago.  Gluing this would probably not hold too well.
    My shrooms are currently curing and later I shall paint the entire item with white primer paint.  I've got all the supplies I need.  My only concern is finding a container and packaging good enough for transport to school for the class critique. 
    Major word of caution; as I have learned......don't create items that have thin stems.  It will test your patience.  So for my Chimera project; there won't be any thin stems or small places to hard to sand down.

Project 1 -- A continued Work In Progress

4 Feb 19

     After having a one to one with Professor Asmuth, I have chosen to take the route towards the evolution of my Mushroom Mouse and to crawl outside of the box and be creative.
