Fateful trip to Michaels on Sunday. Saw this book on paper mache art dolls. Book was over $20, and I've already wreaked serious damage on my budget this payday, so no book for me. However, I look at the book, show book to my sister. Dear Sister says, "you can do that easy." I'm thinking, you know, this would be really fun. It could combine other things I love like painting, beads, strange abstract thoughts... LOL
We already have the wire for the body frame. Dear Sister already had some of the paper mache type clay. And it's not hard to make paper mache. Got paint. Got beads. Got scrap fabric, yarn, etc...
So Sunday evening I started my first person. Don't know what "he" will turn out to be yet. I'm thinking it'll need a staff, the way one hand is already angled. Maybe I'll get one of those little birdies made from styrofoam and feathers to put on the other hand. I could do a kind of Winter Solstice Santa...? Or a wizard.
See, first person is already "artistic". My sister said this with a smile. One arm is longer than the other, one foot is bigger, the head is kind of an odd shape. LOL
I've been taking photos as I go along so I will post those soon. This is fun.
