Did you notice?

In the post about this about the mini bullwhip, did you notice anything funny about the picture?  The playing card the bullwhip is sitting on is a large playing card that is about 6 X 9 inches.  I was having a bit of fun with proportion!

Here’s the bullwhip on my hand:

I was going to try to find all the oversized items (like a giant toothbrush, or comb) at my local joke store and take pictures of this bullwhip next to them.  However I didn’t get around to finding things like that.

I guess the moral is don’t believe everything you see on the internet!

  1. Louie, does this one have a plaited belly? I was able to do one a while back in lightweight roo that has a 4-plait tapered belly. It was fun, but it’s kinda firm for the coil diameter and I guess I’d probably hurt the transition area before fully breaking in the rest of the lash. I was thinking of not plaiting either the belly or overlay too hard so that it doesn’t have such a hard-on nest time. Christmas ornaments, earrings, keychains, mini Indy dolls… they are cool and they really work!

    1. Don,

      This one has a plaited belly. The Christmas Tree ornament I made is just bolsters, and for a mini bullwhip I think that’s the way to go. The plaited belly was more for fun than function.
