Miss Kitty Bling Paws came about by accident. As a beginner and new to paper mache I did three sculptures that were too complicated so I decided I would do something nice and easy like an urn. I did all the right things got the balloon the paper strips the glue and the yoghurt tubs. 2 days later I had a sculpture that I was happy with. I then got a needle and burst the balloon. unfortunately I did not grease the balloon and when it burst the whole sculpture collapsed into a pile of wrinkles ! I managed to salvage most of it. half of the urn base became kitties skirt and the clay around the yoghurt tubs became the frill around her neck I painted her with some of my old oil paints that I never use. big mistake. it took ages to dry but now that she is finished she was worth the wait.
