I received the following email this week, and I just had to share it with you, including all the photos of a roast Christmas turkey, made with paper mache clay. It looks good enough to eat, doesn’t it?
Here’s Betsy’s email, which she gave me permission to share with you:
I just wanted to thank you for sharing all your knowledge and recipes at your web site. I sometimes help with props at our local playhouse and needed to make two roast turkeys (one which looked like it had been ravaged by dogs) and a roast duck whose head could be chopped off, for the production of the musical “A Christmas Story” (based on the book about the little boy, Ralphie, who wants a BB gun for Christmas–perhaps you’ve seen it). Paper mache clay to the rescue!
All our remaining shows (two more weekends) are sold out! However, you are welcome to mention that the props were for Oak Ridge Playhouse, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, if you wish. I guess any mention doesn’t hurt!
