Papier mache mania

After two long weeks of starching, starching, some more starching and finally painting, the advanced art students have finished their papier-mache animal sculptures. We started with an upside down plastic bowl, covered it with saran wrap, starched it with at least 10 layers of newspaper, added ears, noses, legs out of newspaper and cardboard, then toppped it off with one layer of white copy paper. Voila! animals galore :)
