Made by Joanne Bookmyer
I made the heads for this couple almost a year ago (Jonni’s pattern printed at 50%). Then I kept picking them up and putting them down again because I couldn’t decide what to do with them. Finally, I just started making bodies and this is what I ended up with. Used a little bit of everything – traditional, super-smooth, and blue shop towel paper mache plus wood dowels, cardboard tubes, a cone that held yarn… About 18 inches tall.

I love these two. The colours are so vibrant. You are great to keep going and finish your work.
These are great! I especially love the fellow’s pants. They look so real. Are they the shop towels dipped in glue and then attached?
Thanks. Yes, the man’s shirt and pants and the woman’s jacket are made from shop towels. I painted on a few extra layers of glue/joint compound to make them a little stiffer. The pants aren’t painted because it seemed the perfect color for faded jeans.
