These started projects became finished over the weekend.
This particular batch is heading to Germany.
Spaß haben, little beasties.
Today I'm making a little robot like this one-
First I have to paper mache her boxy costume. I already cut and assembled the cardboard bits, and now I'll cover it in several layers of paper towels painted with white glue. Not any ole paper towels will do though. I specifically like the scratchy brown ones that you might find in elementary schools. I had a big stash of them that lasted for years that I had gotten from the university I went to. When I started running low I was known to load up on long sheets whenever I'd come across them at gas stations and the like, but hadn't found a place to get entire rolls. Then one lucky day I spotted them at a restaurant supply store while preparing for a party. I was way too excited to find them!
Speaking of paper mache projects, have you seen this amazing one?
It was made by Kim Graham and 25 voluteers in Seattle.
