Here are some shots of the project that I am currently working on. So far, I'm really happy with the way it's coming along. Although, I will use a slightly different technique when I make the next one. Here, at the coast, the paper mache takes so long to dry, and requires so many layers on a structure this large. Next time, I think I will use fabric dipped in plaster for some of the layers. I was happy to use all that junk mail though. And the cost of materials couldn't be beat.
I'm excited to get going with the painting part of the project.I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do, but then I never really am, I like to keep it rather spontaneous. I know that I want to make sure it stays arty and not cutesy, I have a real thing about my work looking cute - hate that! I think there is a fine line, since the piece is so feminine. Paint drips seem like a good grungy first step. I will show you more pictures as the process continues.
