There’s a new bird in town at KCPT TV. This papier-mâché’d Big Bird was born on the creative tables of Reading Reptile “in swell Brookside Kansas City”. Debbie Pettid, is part owner and Reading Reptile’s own papier-mâché artist. Reading Reptile is KC’s oldest independent bookseller, and one of the leading children’s bookstores in the country.
KCPT staff had the honors of bringing the new creation (backward planked and beaked up) back to KCPT TV studios. You can see more of this season’s newest star during KCPT TV fundraising events. Take a sneak peak now to see how the delivery went.
We also saw some Edible Sculptures hand made in Kansas City. These treats made by Ay look more like glass blown sculptures, but it’s all candy and good enough to eat! This candy sculpting is called Amezaiku and the technique goes way back to ancient Japan. To learn more, go to JoyJoyConfections.com.
