Paper Mache Projects

I finished another paper mache cow with sunglasses. He started with a milk carton and cut paper tubes for the legs. The face was formed with crumpled newspaper. The tail and ears were made with cut out cardboard. They were attached to the other parts of the body with masking tape and plaster cloth. It was then covered with paper mache using newspaper and homemade paste. He's painted with acrylic paint.

These are some of the other projects I am working on. From left to right: a chicken, dog, crow in overalls, goddess of creativity, pencil and lawn bowling woman, and in front, a paint brush.

I belong to a group of women and we refer to ourselves as cows... so naturally, I love your paper machier cow!
