Little Paul the Farting Elephant paper-mache sculpture. Progress; The Proverbial White Elephant! After adding a few details (eyelids, edges on the boots and smoothing out a few areas) it was time for the first ground cover of paint. It will seal the paper-mache (which was completely dry) and shows the final skin. While still in his newspaper jacket I couldn't really tell how the surface texture would be, it's exactly like I want. Don't want it too smooth, you should be able to tell it's paper-mache and the folds and creases add to the feeling of elephant skin. I'm happy!
Next is to give him and Saffy their final appearance which will be fun and exciting!
