Happy 4th…!

Made by Carol Brown

I’m a little excited because this is my first paper mache project that did not follow a tutorial. I used a dried gourd as the base and built up the hat with foil and tape. I covered it with paper mache clay. Painted with acrylics and “antiqued” it with a mix of water and acrylic paint.

  1. What a creative idea! He turned out beautiful. I have a couple of gourds I was wanting to turn into something and you’ve inspired me!
