Portrait Project... papier mâché

The process of starting a self portrait with papier mâché has started... I have been looking forward to this part for some time... since being inspired by this film and others similar to it...


We started with a balloon to get the head shape... and worked with strips of paper and wall-paper paste... we tested all sorts of different ways to use the paste... with brushes, with hands, on the table, directly on the balloon, dipping the paper etc etc... the only instruction was to try out many different ways as possible... to share these methods and then to work with the one that feels best for you...

So now the head shape is ready... I might just show them the film before starting out on the next part... decorating the head with facial features... to get ideas about how to make those features...

Looking forward to seeing how these will turn out... and what we will learn together on the way...
