My favorite new art book…

I am so excited about this book about sculpting with cardboard it that I had to let you know about it. It is written for students, but older artists will enjoy the projects, too. And you don’t have to stop with just cardboard – the shapes he shows us how to make would also make great forms for paper mache.

Links to books mentioned in the video:

  • The Paper Sculpture book that I recommend for younger artists (Right after this post was published, the price of this out-of-print book on amazon.com went from around $10 to $146! If you’d like to read it, see if your local library has a copy, or put it on your wish list until it comes back down to a reasonable price. Other online sellers might also have an affordable copy, and as I write this there’s one for sale on eBay.

I also included some other resources for sculpting with cardboard, including a link to an inexpensive online course, in my latest weekly newsletter. You can see it (and sign up for the newsletter) here: https://www.ultimatepapermache.com/newsletter

  1. As a teen, I babysat a little boy whom I thought invented card board sculpture! When he was in the bath, he would sneak out and get any kind of cardboard he could lay his little hands on, bring it back and add it to the bath water. When it was mushy he would stick it onto the dry sides of the tub and play with it. We rarely could catch him at it. Till it was time to drain the tub. Yuck…drain clogger.

  2. I just ordered it on my kindle you are right there are so many ideas on creating form.. I’m going to love this book…?
