    Wow! I am inspired – he is so well done and you are obviously a master (or mistress, sorry but you don’t say!) of your art form! He is fantastic and, even better, made out of recycled materials! Well done and thanks for posting this. Although I don’t know if I’d have the patience or skill………..fantastic work!

    Thank you, for the complements, Natalie, you’re so right, it took a lot of time and patience, but it was well worth it. It was probably a little much for my first papier mache project, not counting newspaper Halloween lanterns, but it worked out eventually. If I could do my first project over again, I would probably make something with a simpler with an easily recognizable form to it. It isn’t has hard as it looks! Do give it a try if you think it is interesting! Btw, it would be mistress, if it makes a difference. Good luck!

    No difference, just didn’t want to offend!!!!! I have bookmarked this page to show everyone (and I can’t believe this was your first project!)……..Cheers!

    No offense taken. Thanks for your encouraging comments!

    I’m really sorry to everyone whose comment’s I lost when I moved to WordPress. Although they are no longer in the digital world, I remember them fondly. Thank you all for the encouraging responses.

    What an amazing tutorial! Great job!

    The only thing that threw me was “garden” statue. You would not really use this in a garden, would you? I’m assuming it would fall apart in the rain – or can you?

    Really nice work.


    It was originally for the garden and I put a ton of yacht varnish on it, but it is temporary outdoor art. It was outside about for more than 6 months before slowing deteriorating. Even ships aren’t completely waterproof. Everything has to be maintained if it will survive the weather. Thanks for stopping by, Faith.
