From my Paper Maché class



 Im taking a paper maché class here at home. I go there once in a week for three hours.
Our first assignment was to make a lady. That was not hard for me, Im used to making or painting ladies.


We did start making shoulders, then we made the head. I had to make mine with a long neck.


The hair was made with silk paper but the body with newspapers. I made her a neckless, that I made with wire and silk paper.


I made a beautiful dress for her with collage paper I have and started working with her face by adding white silk paper.


Before I had to add a wings to all my ladies but now Im not finished with out making a bird.
I love this long legged bird whispering some secret in her ear.


Now it was time to start painting. I took her home, I wanted to be in my studio, having my things around me to get the feeling for her face.


And she is done, what do you think? 
I might add some colored flowers to her hair, but just a little dots here and there.


In the next class I made this one. LOVE him...

Have a beautiful week and a happy PPF (S) Im always so late posting ...
