    Hello there Jonni! Boy, you are right on top of things this morning.

    My roosters had a fun photo shoot that morning. I wanted a few photos to send my daughter and didn’t want a boring inside photo. :-)

    I wish they were weatherproof! But with your new concrete lion video tutorial, I just may have to try making some concrete roosters. You are such a great inspiration. Did you ever get a new camera?

    Here is one of my paper mache Christmas ornaments. Some people say he looks like Joseph, Jesus, Wiseman or Father Christmas. When I created a few similar, I was thinking Father Christmas. I used a aluminum foil base and Cellulay with acrylic paint.

    Hello, I have enjoyed many of your paper mache videos and recently your concrete lion. My first and last paper mache creations were ten years ago; roosters, Christmas ornaments and brooches. I used powdered Celluclay.

    I enjoyed it immensely but never got around to starting up again. You have given me insentive to start up again.

    Hello
    I finished our paper mache clay sculptures of zombie hands (not gory!) and a P Shooter head from the game Plants Vs Zombies. They were for scarecrows we entered in our local show. Wonderfully our P Shooter received 2nd place in the Open Group category : ) Everyone gravitated toward his bright green head! It turned out so great thanks to your recipe Jonni. Thanks! I had tried standard paper mache first, however wasn’t happy with the imperfections and then found the clay recipe. We also won 1st place for our Individual Open scarecrow: Father Time… He didn’t have any paper mache, however I could help but make a little helmet for the crow that stood upon his shoulder out of left over clay I had! : ) (NB: I’m not sure how to upload several photos at once so I’ll reply to my own post! : ) First one is when the head was finished before attaching.

        Head and hands in making. I applied the second coat of clay to the head all at once however should have only done half at a time. The weight created a couple of small cracks which I patched with more clay! All fine! You can see in the following photo. I also used gypsum for the head which is why it is a brown colour! I think I was trying to make it more weather proof/mold proof due to living in tropics…

          Adding mouth part to the head… A plastic plant pot, then I added old dishwasher hose to the opening to get the rounded opening. You can also see some patch work : )

            This is the crows helmet… I don’t have a photo with it painted, however I painted it silver… I made an impression on the sides of his helmet with a craft ring and then a tool from a nail manicure pouch for the indents at the front… I had to leave it on to dry till it was hard enough to hold its shape otherwise the shrinkage (although minimal) would have meant I couldn’t get it back on!

              Last one I promise! I just wanted to add a hand as it was being made… I really love how you can create such great detail with this clay! Thanks again Jonni and happy sculpting everyone! : )

                Oops! I forgot Disco Dan! He’s “Stay’n Alive”! Hee-hee…. Paper mache hands! I reckon if it weren’t for such a great recipe, this wouldn’t have been half as much fun!

    Hello Jonni,

    I recently completed this pair of ventriloquist masks by using the techniques in your book. Each one is actually two masks; the outer one being the hinged jaw.

    Thanks so much for sharing your methods!
