The chickens have flown the coop

The dead ducks have departed the dovecote, the Godwit has gone awol and the owls have been out manoeuvred. In other words I've had to deinstall my bird skulls from the Grassington Dovecote as the festival has ended and they're now just a bag of bones back in the studio.

I have to report that the Tyvek has done a brilliant job.  The skulls have been outside for nearly 3 weeks in the rainiest and windiest June we've had in decades, and they are still perfect but with the addition of a few spiders webs - most appropriate.  I was really concerned that the InkAID assisted digital printing might wash off in the rain but its fine.  Isn't it great when things work out and materials live up to their promises.
