It's Paper Mache Time!

It's that time of the year when my cats, Jake and Elwood, are in the studio chasing bits of paper mache flying about as I work.  It might actually be worse than normal due to me being behind in getting sculpted figures done for Ghoultide Gathering.  The hands are healed and I'm learning to sculpt with gloves on so that I can proceed with building an inventory of Halloween characters.  Here are some of the paper mache figures in progress below.  Can you tell this last group was a focus on cats, skelly boys and pumpkins?!!


I'm off to go mix some more paper mache clay to get back into sculpting mode for the day! 

Have a great week and weekend!

Thanks Lori and Jennifer! I'm glad the hands are finally healed as well.. I think this time the burns were actually worse than two years ago so I guess that means I don't ever want to do this again. I missed sculpting.

Love all of the Halloween art. It all looks great so it would seem you've mastered sculpting wearing gloves.

Hey Laurie! Long time no visit! What have you done to your hands, my friend? I'm glad they're healing and you're back in the mache making some new fabulous art! xox Pam

The gloves are still a bit of a challenge, but I like having healthy skin so I'm making it work Maddy Rose!!!

Pam, I had another container of the mix with too much alkaline in it and it chemically burned my hands...again. You would think I would have learned from my first experience to start wearing gloves then, but not me. I'm a little slow on the uptake sometimes!!

They are all wonderful! I love the big pumpkin in front. Glad you've mastered sculpting in gloves. Wish I could.
