Remember this dreamy house-headed fellow from a few weeks back?
Well, this week I've been having so much fun making his brother that I couldn't wait til Sunday to share.
I love seeing people's works-in-progress, so I thought I'd share mine too. This variation on my simple house is done all in paper mache. On Day 1, I built the armature and did the first layer of paper mache. The next 2 or 3 layers of gluey paper, and making those cute little leaves, took up Day 2.
Here is Treehouse in it's naked state, on the beginning of Day 3.
On Day 3, I added the paperclay features, and started the base painting while that dried.
Day 4, after the paperclay dried thoroughly, I finished the base painting. Often times at this point I get a case of insecurity, afraid I'll screw up something I really like so far by finishing it badly.
But that fraidy-cat voice in my head is lame,
and I try not to listen to it.
Don't let the fraidy cat
get the better of you.
