Leader of the Band

Ready For The Parade
An eleven inch mixed media bit of fun.The body from the waist and the legs to the knees I used a ready made papier mache and I don't think it was supposed to be mixed with glue (P.V.A). It took ages to dry and set like concrete.Almost needed an electric sander to smooth it.
the next project is an eighteenth century fashion plate.
