Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

Here's something I made for cackle in the latest IYP swap trying to incorporate some sculpting into a piece of wall art. I used fast drying paper mache (very fast) that I picked up in the craft store. It definitely did the trick but I wouldn't recommend it for trying to get a lot of detailing. It wound up being pretty sticky. It did create a great base and I love the texture of it. And I also discovered something amazing called "pouring" medium which creates a super slick look even when dry! I'm in love. The only thing that is annoying is that it is rather hard to photograph.

I agree, it is hard to photograph, but you did a much better job than I did! My pics did not do it justice.

Thanks! I took a bunch before I was able to get some decent ones.
