Tennyson the Armadillo


I've never seen a live armadillo before, but they interest me. So strange looking and have some fun texture to their body.

It probably doesn't come as a surprise to you then, that I wanted to try making a glass one that had quirky patterns on it's shell. (or whatever you call its exterior)

I decided to use neutral colors too. Just for something different. Needless to say, I tend to think they'd be much more attractive with a red and turquoise gaily decorated exterior, but Mama Nature didn't have the same sense of humor.

So meet Tennyson the armadillo. He's just posing in the top photo. Showing you what happened to his Uncle Army when crossing the road at the wrong time. I hear it happens a lot.

See you tomorrow.
