This is my first paper mache project since 5th grade!
I was/am in quarantine, or as I refer to it “Artist-in-Residence”. I decided to try a paper mache sculpture because an artist friend of mine literally dropped off a plastic shopping bag of paper she had chopped up in her blender with water. I made the armature out of plastic shopping bags, newspaper, and masking tape. I also fashioned the toes out of wire and then coated them with paper strips and then the paper clay. I did a few layers of strips and then covered it all with the paper clay. I also decided I didn’t want to paint him so I painted a bunch of papers and collaged them onto the frog. It was a really fun project. Thanks for your recipes and advice.
