Haggis Hill Part Deux


This post has lots of pictures!

HH1This is how Haggis Hill started. My human brother cut out some curve pieces of cardboard at work.

HH2See the template (the black thing)!

HH3This shows the tube that will be the center of the hill and the cut cardboard.

HH4Then he bringed it home and with double-sided glue tape he glued the cardboard to tube and taped both to coroplast.

HH5Alex 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)

HH6Here is Mommy putting the first layer of Papier Mache over top of everything

HH7Here it is after the first coat was put on.

HH8Here 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).

HH10This 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?

HH11Here is me, me is checking out Haggis Hill!

HH12And here is the Hill on the golf course! Yous can’t see it, but a golf ball went through the other side!

Right now the hill is at my brother’s work. Mommy and Alex is talking about getting some dinosaurs and turning it into a volcano and filming it!!!

Mes thinks that would be pawsome!!!
