Made by Margarethe Brummermann
Loosely following Jonni’s book about small dog sculptures, I built a wire-foil-masking tape armature and covered it with newspaper strips. Let it dry and then wanted to add details with paper mache clay. But we had a water main break and had to turn off the water. Since I had made too much paste for the strips, I soaked tissue paper in it and applied it while pushing it into the shape of hair locks with a knife. An old Burro armature also finally got a paper skin. Right now it’s all drying again. So maybe I’ll finish with PM clay tomorrow, or more tissue paper?
