Gourmet Paper Mache

Not your third grade paper mache

Archive for ‘November, 2015’

I’m always thrilled when people use my books and videos and to make something they love.  Here are more photos sent to me by people doing paper mache.   If you have paper mache art that you would like me to display just send them to me at dan@gourmetpapermache.com.   Enjoy!

I want to start with my friend and fellow artist, Matt, aka “Nubbie.”  He’s been making some great art.  I love the size and attitude of his projects.   Let’s start with his dragons.  Here is Matt with his giant dragon trophy!  Matt is the one on the left.   🙂
