Current barnacle project: Completed!

Here are pictures of the completed barnacle, as promised. I'm fairly pleased with the way this guy turned out; practice makes perfect! Here he is in his new home on my office ceiling.

Wait a tick ... it's my sister's birthday today, so in her honor I am naming this barnacle after her.
Happy Birthday, Leslie!


Milkah the cat was nearly a casualty. She ran underneath my foot as I was getting down from the stepladder after hanging this critter. (Or maybe I would have been the casualty.)

That sounds like a good safety tip: "Confine all non ceiling-dwelling pets before using a stepladder."

The corner-hugging tendril was kind of a happy accident

Here you can plainly see my new tentacle/grabber design.

Here's a good view of the mouth. I had to lie on the floor to take this shot:

I think the long tendrils worked out very well as a design element. Leslie looks like he is planning on an extended stay; sort of like when your house guest begins forwarding his mail to your address.
