Andrea Everman's beautiful shadow puppets found on and lifted from the fantastic blog Modern Craft. I love her characters, especially the toothfairy (above) and the yetti.
I tried a shadow puppet project where I cut old paper bags to look like the hanging peking ducks in Chinatown. When the sun hit a certain angle in the room, the ducks cast a big sharp on the wall. I never finished the project though (a Chinatown window) and only have a few paper-bag ducks hanging in my kitchen. Pretty ragged compared to these lovelies but I 'm inspired to continue the project once I catch up with my work.
