Progress on Benten and Hotei
This is the progress I have made on my paper mache gods of happiness. I added plaster cloth to define the goddess on the left to show a kimono. The lady on the right is a lawn bowls lady. I also added a bag for Hotei to hold. I think it is filled with good fortune.
The 2 on the left are made using an empty spice bottle for the form. The 2 on the right were empty food containers. (frosting bucket and ricotta cheese bucket) I covered the bottoms with plaster cloth.
