Witch Sculpts Revisited

A few years back I used the technique of papier maching over clay sculptures to create my trio of witch characters.

While reviewing these photos it struck me that I really would like to play with this technique again, it was fun and I enjoy sculpting with clay although it’s something I don’t do very often.

The technique is dependable as long as you use a good release agent so the papier mache does not stick to the clay; otherwise it becomes a tedious mess trying to scrape the clay from the dried paper.

I’m thinking some new creatures, not witches but something different for the 2010 display.

Now I'm intrigued; do you paper mache over clay in order to make a copy?

Looking great, by the way.
