All of the work of dying eggs and making up the baskets is done in a factory now adays you know. Sure, it's still being done by bunnies but now they have a union and have a great benefits package. The medical alone ... well you can imagine what that can mean with the size of rabbit families.
The head bunny at the North Pole Easter Egg Factory or the NPEEF as we like to call it, is Pugsley who you've already met. I've heard he can be a real task master but that is just what I've heard. The bunny you're meeting today is one of the master colorists and has been working at the factory for all of his adult life. His name is Beauboo Bunny and he's shy and somewhat timid and doesn't have much to say but I'm told he's an excellent worker.
After coloring his eggs Beauboo must take them to be inspected. Quality Assurance or QA has become a big deal in the Easter Egg industry.
Is anybody here?
Where is everybody?
Has everybody left for the day?
There you are Beauboo, getting in a little overtime are you? I don't suppose you feel like going for a nice cold carrot juice after work now do ya'?
I was told Pugsley looks somewhat like one of my Santa figures. It might be the white fur on his face and chest does make him look a wee bit like Santa. I doubt anyone will mistake Beauboo here as being a Santa impersonator.
I've painted him a soft pale gray with darker under tones and have given him a white face and cotton tail. Beauboo is sculpted from paper mache clay and the eggs in his basket are made with cold porcelaine clay.
I'll be painting or sewing for the next few days while I wait for paper mache to dry. What are you working on?
As always, thanks for stopping by.
