Art Ninja props

Some props created for CBBC's popular Art Ninja show.

I made 2 versions of the egg; one at 60cm that could be carried, and half of one at several times the size that Gavin could 'hatch' out of on screen. Both versions were tested by my boys to make sure that they worked properly!

The shadow sculpture was a bit more complex to realise: it had to cast the shadow fairly accurately, and also to look like a heap of rubbish before the light source was switched on to throw the shadow, which took a lot of trial and error to get right. I think the bit I like most is her stiletto heel, which is actually a coat hanger held at just the right angle.
