My Family of Three Papier Mache Froges 

I have been working on these three paper mache frogs for a long time now. These three frogs have been on a shelf for years. I had them all built, but just couldn't find or make the time to paint them. I knew in my mind how I wanted them to look and knew I wouldn't get the effect I wanted with acrylic paint. The time they were on the shelf, I was working more with my air brush and opaque watercolor or guache. Gouache is an opaque watercolor paint and along with my air brush I would now be able to get the effect I wanted. Guess I just needed to hone my skills more.

A lily pad works just fine for a picnic.

Three Seasons

Spring, Fall, and Winter Papier Mache'

I love it, I just love it , and I can't stop making it, and I just can't get enough of it.
This is a fun medium to work in. So many things you can do with paper mache', form small projects to large projects. I like the texture, its light weight, strong,urban, and drys relatively fast.
