I used the box all the items came in, along with part of the clay, the peanuts, wire, wire mesh, the ear, the mannequin, paint, and some glue to hold it all together. The only tools I used besides my hands were a butter knife, paintbrushes, and an xacto knife.
As I first started thinking about the theme I wanted to build a big cloud because dreams come in clouds, then I thought about some of the odd dreams I'd have at night and got instant inspiration. Each segment of my project is just a piece of a dream and I am looking at it instead of experiencing it.
Big Bang helped me get lots of creative juices flowing!
