New project, Tenn. Classic raffle table, "The Parting Shot".
« on: August 25, 2021, 11:41:55 am »
I've just started my newest paper mache project for next year's Tenn Classic raffle table. This is a toilet paper roll stuffed with news paper, styrofoam end plugs, covered with tissue paper and white glue and florist wires for other body parts

From this....


...hopefully to something like this...


...or maybe like this. I'll take pics as I proceed and post them here

Now that is really cool. Very interested to see the progress.

Thanks guys.
Russell, how did I do this?.....very slowly. That's why I'm starting now to be finished by April.  ;D
 My wife is an artist and paper mache is one of her mediums so I have professional help when I need it.    :OK

Thanks BJ and Morgan. Paper mache is a cool material to work with along with structural materials like wire, styrofoam, cardboard and other stuff. My wife really makes cool stuff.

It's for a good cause, Pappy so it's worth the effort.
 Steve, thanks. I've been thinking about the "parting shot" for a while and now I think the rider should be a woman. Haven't had a woman subject yet.
 This is going to be especially interesting because of the cloths worn by ancient horse archers. I'm going to try to get it as close as possible to being authentic like I have with the others.
