Here is my second Day of the Dead Elvis. He is made of paper mache'.  I start with a wire armature and build upon it with crinkled newspaper.  I then mache' over it with newspaper strips and then add a paper clay mix.  He is then sanded and painted with acrylic paints.  He is sporting the Blue Fireworks jumpsuit.  I am a huge Elvis fan and plan to eventually do all the jumpsuits.
