This post has lots of pictures!
This is how Haggis Hill started. My human brother cut out some curve pieces of cardboard at work.
See the template (the black thing)!
This shows the tube that will be the center of the hill and the cut cardboard.
Then he bringed it home and with double-sided glue tape he glued the cardboard to tube and taped both to coroplast.
Alex then filled the vanes with expanding foam and covered it with that plastic shelf liner. The path on the hill goes counter-clockwise as Haggis can only walk that one direction (The wild Haggis (plural: Haggi) lives in the highlands of Scotland. It is round, four-legged, fur-covered, and usually less than a foot in length (comparable in size to a grouse). It is a shy creature, rarely seen, and for this reason there is great disagreement about its exact morphology and habits. For instance, many who claim to be Haggis experts say that the legs of the Haggis are longer on one side of its body than the other, in order to allow it to better stand on the steep slopes of the highlands. As a consequence, the haggis can only run around hills in one direction, and to catch one you simply run around the hill in the opposite direction. – http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/animals/comments/haggis)
Here is Mommy putting the first layer of Papier Mache over top of everything
Here it is after the first coat was put on.
Here is the hill after the second layer dried. Mommy and Alex put on 3 layers of paper (not very thick) with extra coats of Wallpaper paste).
This is the hill after Mommy sprayed on the brown paint. The path is still green tape and not green paint. Does it not look like rocks?
Here is me, me is checking out Haggis Hill!
