Paper Mache Update



Remember the big paper mache I've been rehabbing? Well, the picture above is where she's at right now.

The good thing about doing this is if I don't like the face I can start all over again and it will just fill in the crazing she had when I received her. Here's where she began...










Who knows where she'll end up. I'm going to let her rest for a while and think on it.
