mummy and the kittens

Made by Margaret Kennedy

Hi Jonni, this is my first try at paper mache. my inspiration came from a painting of an Egyptian cat and two kittens. I made a lot of mistakes but I learnt a lot. I almost didn’t have room to paint mummy because the kittens were in the way. I used a large tin of dog food , empty of course, for mummy, a wooden spoon , .newspapers and for the kittens 2 foam balls. ultimate paper mache is the best thing on the internet. my next sculpture is called snow buddies and it is on its way. thank you so much.
