So after much contemplation I have shifted the direction of my dear friend Tick Tock and have gone with this head. I jumped down the Pinterest rabbit hole one more time to see how others sculpted more difficult paper mache sculptures and the answer is this – or so I think.
His body should be much simpler than this head, but we’ll see…I am still completely nervous about this project. However, if it turns out great then this will surely lend help to someone else’s creative process since Pinterest shows many amazing piñatas without tutorials for the more difficult or extravagant ones.
I’m off to work on my dear friend some more, so please continue to stop by and check out my progress!
