I found this book in the garage, it belonged to my granma. I think it's lovely. Anyway, I have made a papier mache bird.
This is how:
The usual suspects when it come to some pap mach, I taped up a few balls of newspaper , then smothered them in the sticky stuff.
I added a beak, and some spindly legs that don't really work, gave it a few more layers of pap mach. It is now it lost all resemblance to a real bird. So I'll pretend it's a made up bird.
This is the finished thing standing in some plants. Rob says that lumps give it character, mine is such a ruddy character.
