Chief Flat Horn part 2

Made by Marisa Pierce

I have added paper Mache clay to the eyes, the mouth and nose and parts of the antlers, and then sanded parts leaving some organic impressions made by applying the paper Mache clay, and lightly sanded, I also did some texturing to the moose with the paper Mache clay , the antlers I just added the paper mache with a 1/2 inch soft bristle paint brush and used water while applying to give it a more organic bone affect, and now I am ready to prime and paint what do you think so far God Bless 🙂

  1. Do you use the wet sanding method with regular sand paper and does it soften the paper mâché clay enough to smooth it? I hope I am understanding your method.

    • I use a higher grit of sandpaper when I wet sand, going over fine details i apply just enough pressure so that i can see the shape i am going for I don’t apply the sand paper rough, if i do I lose my shape and yes the ppmc will come off , and then i have to apply more, so very lightly sand with higher grit of sand paper. it can be time consuming so to get a better idea if you have a scrap piece of ppmc try sanding using the wet method on that to see the pressure you will need for your project. I hope that helps God Bless 🙂

    • I have a hand held dremmel with different attachments that I used to sand and I use 600 to 800 grit sand paper when I sanded lightly by hand I use a wet sanding method in delegate areas I also applied the ppmc with a wet paint brush and sculpted the areas with sculpting tools hope that helps and thank you ?
