Hey all,
Here are some pics of my latest creations I did for St. Louis Craft Mafia's CraftaNostra show.  My pieces start out with a wire, paper or styrofoam armature, and then covered in newspaper strips and the last layer is a paper pulp that is sanded and then painted.

Hope you enjoy!

These are great!! Paper mache, good thinkin'.  I'm going to try this for a catrina I want to make for a Dia de los Muertos party we're going to have. I made salt dough sugar skulls a couple of years ago & of  course they haven't held up.
Love the detailing! Thanks for the inspiration.
