Good Read: Papier Mache Sculpture


It’s been a while since I posted, partly because of school spring break, and partly because it took me this long to finish my new work. I like to throw in a new challenge each time in order to grow artistically, this time I finally mustered enough courage to tackle colour, patina head on. I’m wondering what took me so long. :)

    She absolutely looks like a bronze now. Great job! I’ll bet people are shocked at how light she is.

    Great job! She looks like a bronze now. I’ll bet people are shocked when they lift her to find how light she is.

    This is very nice, Erika. She does look like bronze. I bet those two arms gave you trouble–the length of the one holding the book, and what to do with the hand of the other–or not? I see you finally put some hair on a figure. I wonder whether you were tempted to try a scarf or cloth instead. Actually, now that you’ve done a naked maja, I’d like to see a dressed one. You do clothes well too.

    Thank you for all the nice comments.

    Cheryl, I wanted to comment on your beautiful Gypsy Necklaces, but I kept getting an error message.

    Swallows, I just wanted to “prove” I can actually make a pretty girl. :) The difficulty was the mounting to the base in a way that ALL her limbs and belly touch the base and give a sense of weight at the same time.

    A dressed girl would be nice too, I agree. I’m playing with the idea of a life size piece. If I could figure out how and of what to make the armature.

    She is beautiful, I love the color, – and the shape of the hair.
