I hung him in my office where he acts as my own personal attack duck to scare off my enemies. So far, everyone just says "aw, that's cute."
They'll not think he's so cute once he pecks their eyes out.
Read on to see how to make your own!
Step 1: Body base
Sculpting with newspaper and masking tape is easier than you might think.
You begin by just wadding up newspaper and wrapping tape around it. You can mold it into the shape you want by nipping and tucking the wad of paper together and putting tighter pieces of tape in place.
To add more material you just tape on more wadded newspaper, and a sharp knife can be used to remove material. I've found that a heavy duty snap-style utility blade with the blade extended and locked in place works very well for carving and shaping.

Step 3: Body modifications
As you work you have to constantly evaluate what you've got, and change it as you go. You can't be afraid to hack off a portion if it doesn't look the way you want.
Note the second photo--I had to do some drastic reconstruction to the head to acquire a decent duck-like head shape.
