Another creative project...


I always wanted to try to do something with paper mache....Colleen and I made 2 pinatas for her Spanish class. This frog was one....we also made a fish but I don't have a pic of him. They were alot of fun, but messy! I have some ideas of other things I'd like to create using this techinque. The colors turned out pretty, I think. We basecoated it white and then glued on torn tissue paper to make the colors.

Great pinata. We always use them at the grandchildren's birthday parties...but I never made one. Yours is wonderful!

What a fun project - lots of work, but look at how cute he turned out!
Too bad almost, that he'll get whacked to bits..at least you have this photo as a reminder.

Love his goofy smile!
