My daughter sent me a photo and said “can you make me something like this?” Used cardboard and foil for the form.
I got a little heavy handed with the PM clay so he’s a little heavier than I would like for a puppet. I started with traditional newspaper mache and I probably should have stuck with that but I just really like the texture of the clay. I did a little hand painting but mostly used spray cans. My husband did the actual spraying – I gave directions and handed him the colors I wanted him to use.
The eyes are from Etsy. I tried painting them on but they just didn’t give him the “dragon look”.
