Trying paper-maché during quarantine. I used the old-fashioned balloon method, with paper strips. The balloon started to deflate mid-project. Found this site and used the clay recipe to build it back up. So far, so good! Don’t recommend using balloons. At least not cheap ones!

Great looking quail! Hope you continue to do pm and share it with us!
I gave up balloons when I found this site. Never looked back and don’t intend to. They are beautiful quail. (Come to think about it, I haven’t seen many this year.) Thanks.
By the way, when I’ve made things with nothing to keep the standing, I use rings of some kind — masking tape cardboard, plastic rings, hollow rocks, whatever you can find. Doesn’t take much to keep them upright. Awesome.
Those are adorable! Great paint job!
Ann, I agree about the balloon – they make any project harder. But your quail are beautiful anyway! I love the way you painted them.
