Sumo Snowmen???


My first attempt at paper mache... since elementary school.
A little army of snowmen (sumo guys?) heading for the oven to dry.
I'm hoping that with some paint, glitter, and foof they won't look so "sumo-ish"!

New to your blog. I too can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm thinking of trying paper mache myself.

Oooohhh...you and I must be on the same wavelength! I've been trying paper mache lately too. Not much luck yet...the stuff I bought sticks to my hands. Humpf!

I can't wait to see what your chubby army looks like when they're done! :)

I think they might end up looking very cute!

Heather, if you paint with gesso it will fill in a lot of the cracks that happen with paper mache...i bet they will be cute when you are all finished!!!

Ha :) Too cute! They might have needed another ball in the center to mot look so sumo-ish. I'm sure you will make them look absolutely darling though!
