This is my papier mache monkey.  His basic structure is made of balled-up grocery bags.  Then I wired his arms/legs/tail onto his head and body and covered the whole thing in cloth strips dipped in white glue.  His "skin" is papier mache pulp mixed with some saw dust for texture.  I made him to test out my pulp recipe before completing a bigger project that I have in the works.
His eyes and teeth are made of modeling clay which I covered in resin to make glossy and wet-looking.

If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

His positioning and facial expression are just spot on. What a great monkey!
