He's almost ready to fly...I just need to add some jowls to his face to fatten him up. This new papier mache mix I'm using is really amazingly easy to build with. It's just like clay!
The recipe needs to get written down before I forget what I did -
- Soak cheap newsprint with Clorox until it gets soft.
- Grind up in blender until it is mush, drain well.
- Add white glue, linseed oil, drywall mud and stucco mix - I'm using a Sto product.
- Store in covered container in a cool spot. That's it!
After his bigger cheeks dry (they won't get put on until tomorrow night), I'll sand him down and paint him. Maybe with a bathing suit, since it is so darn hot!
Tomorrow I'm back at Tideline Fabrics...my REAL job!
