Paper Mâché birds and heads

I have been making some bird and people heads.

Made from paper-mâché – PVA glue & water with newspaper dipped into it. I make a sturdy cardboard base by wrapping some around a jar, and then cover with a couple of layers of paper-mâché to make it go really dry when hard.

Man’s not finished

Emily Warren’s animal heads

I spent a day in the Handmade shop in Brighton last week. My friend Angela Chick is part of the art collective who run the not-for-profit shop. There’s lots of lovely things in the shop, my favourite being these animal heads by Emily Warren.
