I created the form of the flamingo by using newspaper, cardboard and masking tape. Reinforced the neck with a coat hanger so it would retain the graceful S shape of the head and neck. Created the feathers by first shaping bits of cardboard & masking tape, then applying the Paper Mache – Painted with Acrylic paints. All in all… pretty happy with it. I usually do little fairy houses, This is my 2nd large Paper Mache project, My first large project was an life size, 10ft alligator.
