My First Baby Head Mannequin

Made by Gwen Bryan

I wanted a cute way to display my Crochet baby hat’s and could not find a simple mannequin that small. So I started researching paper mache and was thrilled to find Jonni’s web page! I used a balloon, plastic dixie cup, masking tape, cardboard and foil for the armature. Covered it with several layers of news paper and regular paste. Then I added Paper Mache Clay! As you may notice I didn’t take a lot of time on facial detail’s. That will come another time! ( I actually blew the balloon up partially then placed it inside the hat then blew it out to fit!)
