We’ve been receiving some very interesting comments lately, complete with photos of new artwork made with paper mache clay. I’m going to showcase a few of them here, just in case you don’t have time to read through every single page on this site every single day (whew – that would take some serious time!).
You might recognize this first reader – it’s my dad. I bragged about the concrete garden bench he made for me a few months ago, and now here he is again with a brand-new chicken, made with paper mache clay. He volunteered to be my “technical editor,” and followed the instructions for the first project in my upcoming book (yes, it really is coming soon – I know I keep saying that, but now it’s really true…).
Handsome devil, isn’t he? And a nice chicken, too. Well done, Pete.
The photos below are smaller, but if you click on the person’s name you can go directly to their comment to read their description of they made the sculptures, and then click on the photo in their comments to see a larger version.
Terra Mar not only made a very nice frog – she also took photos of the process all along the way. You can find all the photos out on her Picasa album page. She followed the paper mache clay frog tutorial that I posted several months ago.
Eunice Kahlke shared this photo of her abstract sculpture, which she titled “Lean on Me.” She explains how she got that beautiful finish in her comment. I always love seeing people using the recipe in a totally new way.
Roxanne didn’t post a photo in her comment, but she gave us a link to her blog, where she shows off her human heart sculpture, made with paper mache clay. On that blog post she shows us the completed heart, plus the references she used to get it anatomically correct, and photos of the heart while she was working on it.
Harry Marsh sent in two photos of a wonderful dragon trophy and a fly (or is it a wasp?). He used traditional paper and paste for the sculptures, but he added some inventive twists that he discussed in his comment.
Thanks to Pete, Terra Mar, Eunice, Harry and Roxanne for sharing your projects with us. Very inspiring.
