These are great! I'm so glad you're sharing them with folks in this forum, too.

So happy you shared your pics with us. Curious now though...what did you use as your base form under the paper mache and when do we get to see the finished product??? :D I have played with paper mache a lot over the years and I always love it! Brings out the kid in me. You are right about the mess but it is sooo much fun, isn't it? Hope to see more of your work in here soon.
Have a great day

Where did you and summer rain get your clay from? (yes, I know, Australia isn't New Zealand, but it's a lot closer than the rest of the world:D ...and I know that we share a lot of the same retail outlets)
Also heard a different way of papier mache today. Soak cardboard in water and then when it's very mushy liquidize it in a blender, drain off excess water and mix it with PVA, apparently it sets rock hard, as is very malleable .
Guess what I'm going to be doing tomorrow:D

Impetuous i forgot to tell you it is air dried clay....other shops here also sell it...The only thing that I was told about air dried clay is to make sure that it is not put on too thin and that it should dry slowly otherwise it will crack.....but the mask I did is great ..it didn't crack....:D :D
