What-nots from a mother who'd like to think she's cool when she most probably is not.

Papier Macheniacs: YO, KING PIG!
This project has been on our waiting list for like forever! Well, we finally found the time (and the ball) to get this project running --and so here it is!
EVERYBODY… BOW DOWN TO YOUR PAPER MACHED KING PIG! :P
Sculpting this guy was a blast. He's made out of common household materials. A plastic ball, an old sippy cup, a smaller ball which we sliced in two, and newspaper.
We wanted some 3D action going on so we used bottle caps for his nostrils, too.
The ball had texture and it was difficult working around that even during the teepee stage. But then we decided the spikes actually gave our pig a bit of personality.
After an overnight drying time, we painted this bad boy.
And before we know it, we've got our own Bad Piggie head honcho rolling around in the house --turned-up snooty snout, golden crown, and permanent angry shriek on his puffy mouth. Haha!
If you think this is a cool project, just follow our lead and make your own. It's pretty easy to make royalty, you'll see. :)
Up next: Tiny Piggie Minions! Darnit… we're gonna need more balls...
