Cassiel is a boy’s name of Latin origin meaning “angel of Saturday”. Since I completed this project and today is Saturday how appropriate. Elephants are known to bring good luck and protection so the name meaning angel (we all have our guardian angels) it seemed to suit him perfectly.
Cassiel, the Golden tusked guardian, is from a paper art kit purchased online. Covered in masking tape, then Jonni’s recipe for Super Strong paper mache using Titebond III wood glue. What an amazing and light weight super strong beautiful paper mache. (Thank you so much!!) Loved the smooth finish. Covered in a super thin joint compound coating and lightly sanded. Painted and ended up with this amazing buttery smooth look. Covered in Modge podge. Very pleased with the outcome.
