Crafts for Easter Fun Completed!

I finished repairing the insert for the Easter Basket.  It looks good as new!  Next year I will probably make a new insert using color card stock to make more interesting and much sturdier. Note: The Styrofoam was used to provide depth for the lower layer.  I frequently receive packages with Styrofoam sheets.  I always […]

EasTer Rex and Crafts for Easter Fun!

We have all heard of the Easter Bunny.  Did you know there were Easter Dinosaurs?  Really!  The EasTer Rex, the EasteRapator, EasTerceratops and many other Eatersaurus.  For some reason the Bunny is the only Easter animal people seem to remember.  Hmmmm.  Millions of years ago a group of Dinosaurs met to improve relationships with all […]

The Terrifying Travels of Terry & Tracy

Terry & Tracy decide to take a cross country driving trip.  They were looking forward to seeing all their favorite places in the USA.  After warming up the ’54 Imperial, they were off.  Several enjoyable days of sightseeing passed and Terry decides to takes a short cut that promises a more scenic route.  But does it???  Terry […]

Springtime with Dinosaurs!

It’s Springtime at the Park.  The wisteria is in bloom.  In addition, the rains this year have provided lots of green.  Warmer weather is the perfect time to start planting flowers and vegetables.  Which means lots of yard work!  Paul, Marc & Christopher have been trimming (or eating) the brush around their area.  Marc would […]

A “Dinotopia” Reading & Dinosaurs in the Public Library – Book Review continued

We had a “Dinotopia” reading today at the Park.  “Dinotopia: A Land apart from Time” and “Dinotopia: The World Beneath” by James Gurney.   He created these wonderful stories and published them in 1992 & 1995 respectively.  James published two other “Dinotopia” books – “First Flight” 1999 and “Journey to Chandara” 2007.  I will have to […]

Triceratops Marc – Painting Mouth, Detailing & Touch-Ups

I often cover most of the Dinosaur even when masking a small area like the mouth.  When you are painting outside the wind can kick up and change direction in an instant placing unwanted overspray on a previously finished area.  A little extra preparation at the start can save you a great deal of work […]

Triceratops Marc – Painting Shield, Beak, Claws & Stripes

Painting the Shield is the beginning of making the colors pop!  After masking, spray several light coats giving each a few minutes to dry.  I allow a couple of hours before removing the masking.  Make several examinations before you do, to ensure you have the coverage you want.  It’s frustrating if you rush to remove […]
