First time using paper mache clay. Used the grizzly bear pattern but left off the ears to accommodate the hat. I applied a layer of regular paper mache first because I was worried abt the pattern alone being too flimsy. Completely unnecessary step. Jonni’s instructions for making the clay were great but even so I was concerned about the texture. Used the aluminum foil sculpting method from the bear mask video and am happy with the result. Because of the time crunch I had to paint it quickly and before it was 100 percent dry. It worked for the short term but I don’t think it will last for the long term bc of the moisture trapped under the paint. Need to find the next project to improve my skills!
