Richard, my husband, is a man of numerous talents, not just the I.T guy behind this blog, second photographer, web coding scientist, writer of “I Love When You Talk Desserts To Me”, my genius business partner at O+M, but the guy is a mighty fine musician.
I want to take a moment and without shame, gush and share some of his skills like the short films he scored music for here at Robot Love Productions or his days playing in Shades of Day and numerous band or really insane things like this with Captain Ted .
The guy has an enormous passion for his craft and I could not be more proud.
Non relating to music for a moment, the other day I had a silly idea to take a D.I.Y approach to the traditional mounting of animals as trophies which, I might add, freaks me out a little, but I digress, I thought it would be silly to mount a plastic fish or animal. I had all the supplies except for the plastic figurine. When picking out my animal I had a clear idea what I wanted, a Moose.
Moose Honey is one of Richard’s music projects that I find the most amusing and has a special place in my heart.
Rick’s Moose Honey trophies are now hung with pride just across from his college diploma.
- Wood Plaque
- Spray Paint
- Strong Glue
- Plastic animal
- Dremmel (for cutting)
Dremmel your animal in half and make sure the cut is straight and smooth. Spray paint (possibly will need a primer for most colors and gloss paint) allow to dry. Paint your plaque. Then adhere overnight your animal to the plaque. Let it stand for at least 24 hours then hang on to your wall.
