I’m always thrilled when people use my books and videos to make something they love.   Makes me feel like a grandpa to these projects.  Here are some more photos of paper mache art people have sent to me. If you would like me to post your photos, send them to me at, dan@gourmetpapermache.com.   Enjoy!

 

Jaedyn Grant had an assignment for her Language Arts class having to do with Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”.  She and her mother, Christy, decided to make an elephant holding a heart dripping blood as a metaphor for the themes in the book.  And what a great job they did!  It took many long hours of them both working together to accomplish this piece.  Fantastic job!

She made a paper mache heart ("Heart of Darkness" - Kurtz's heart:Colonialism) with hot glue blood drips, being held like a trophy by the elephant (Congo:Nature).
