Made this dog and cat for our float in the annual Christmas parade (I volunteer with our local animal shelter). There's a PVC base inside, then 3 sessions of paper mache, so approx 9 layers of paper total, plus a thin layer of joint compound to smooth out the strippyness (which I realize is not a word, but fun to say nonetheless).

and so it begins:


One down, one to go:

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Will do! I'm working on a 4x6ft dog house, made of PVC and canvas, for the trailer that we'll be pulling. These guys will hopefully ride on the top of the truck cab - provided we can rig a strong enough magnet to hold it on.
