I want to make my own swan planter and was thinking that paper mache would be good for sculpting it. But my question is about sealing it for use as a planter, with water and everything. I have not worked much with sealers and stuff like that. What do you think? Would paper mache work or is there something else? I don't really want to use clay, because if it is not the actual bake in kiln kind it breaks down outside. Please let me know!
Here is a pic of what I want to make:
PS any ideas for other animals?!
