Lady Chanterelle Paper Mache Biplane

Lady Chanterelle,
I started with a large plastic pop bottle, cut out a space for the Gnome to sit in, then covered the bottle in a homemade clay. The wings are cardboard covered in clay. I had made groves for those pieces to fit into, glued them in with tacky glue then another layer of clay over that.
Wire and buttons make up the wheels. The top wing is held up with wooden craft sticks.

Update: May 2019,
This picture was taking before Gnomey got a make over. If you've seen him recently then he looks different than he does below. Now he has more normal looking eyes.

You're on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights.
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.

You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed.
You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you'll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest!

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
(Story poem by Dr.Seuss. Some lines omitted and some switched around)
