Building tiny armatures of wire, tin foil and masking tape for papier-mâché circus dogs.

This new found passion began a few weeks back when I discovered myself without power during Hurricane Matthew, but recalling directions on how to cover plastic and styrofoam Dollar Store pumpkins with papier-mâché, I started wrapping some old pumpkins and cats’ heads in papier-mâché.  That was the most fun that I have had in ages.

Now, following directions in a great book, How to Make Tiny Paper Mache Dogs, I have started to make dogs to my own design.
