I finally re discovered paper mache. I found a wonderful site with plenty of  tutorials and eagerly got to work on my sculpture. I think I have found my new addiction Cheesy
I am having so much fun and have a greyhound and a Clydesdale horse in progress.
This doggy is about 10 inches tall and each sculpture has taken me about 2.5 hours to sculpt before I even start putting on the paper mache, but I eat every minute of it!

He's so sweet and his wee ruff just makes him cuter!

He is adorable.  He looks like a classic Punch and Judy Toby dog especially with his dear little ruff. Look forward to seeing the other projects.

Hi, yes sure! The site I got all my info from is ultimatepapermache.com
The lady is an absolute darling and everything is on her site. Paper mache recipes, her projects, tips and tricks, videos, painting tips.
I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to give paper mache a go.
I used her chihuahua pile of flesh but changed it to more of a mini fox terrier, to suit what I wanted better.
Cheers
