The Nursery Elephant Project

On the back of the Gromit Unleashed project, my sons nursery asked if i could save their fiber glass baby elephant. The elephant was in a terrible state (see the pics below), they wanted it for the 'Bath in Bloom' festival. So i wanted to give them something different, so the first thing that popped into my head was the amazing festival elephants from India. Due to illness I only had 6 days to complete the task, on top of my day job, and building a theatre set for the same deadline.

I love the quiet life.
