Made by Kris Pratt
Some paper mache “wall art” sculptures.
The clay was made using Jonni’s recipe but with egg cartons instead of toilet paper.
The Celtic Heart is aluminium foil on cardboard, then covered in clay.
The tree is cardboard back, with wire glued on to make the loops come out, then bulked up with aluminium foil, and covered with the clay. I included some painting progress pictures. I made it to hold my flower hair clips, added a wire loop on the back to hang it on the wall.
I made the Lava “ZooYork” logo for my nephew. It is cardboard with clay over it. Painting took a while, base solid black, then just layers of yellow, orange, and red in the cracks (looked at many images of lava/magma texture photos online). Finished by dry-brushing different shades of grey to make it look like rock(same technique on the celtic heart).
The egg cartons made the clay have a very organic and thick texture, perfect for the rock and tree bark looks.
These are a few more of my projects, I still have… I think… 7 in the works….
