little bowl experiments-NUMBER 1

hi,here again!

i've started a new bowl and got stuck(the same grammatical problem as below) guess where-of course while painting!i liked the first coat of paint but an idea jumped(has jumped have jumped or simple jumped -i never know-choose the right one...ugh) in my mind and made me quit any movements.i was afraid not to spoil the surface then i've decided to make a mini bowl series to experiment.while the big bowl waits his paint couts a little one is already finished.not following the big ones idea.that's an old (lol)idea.i'll present my little bowls birth cutting out the very first images hehe-they are not needed.

this is the first image-molded over a plastic milk bottle(i can't find the right word).at this stage the rough pulp is still wet.the new idea was to dusk some well dried pulp pieces into for a new look.also learning on this new texture.

when fully dried(a few pieces had to be glued again though)it was covered in dragon skin.

lefted 24 hours to dry then applied a thin layer of acrylic wall paint ..

yes, i failed the painting part i had to change it -not immediately of course -the family needed me lol-

that's its size and new look not varnished yet....

i like the inside paint...somehow the outside one shouldbe nicer if smoother..i've realized though it's a nice texture it is hard to work may be the size of a bowl.i'm sure it will be easier on a big one.

like it or not this is the FINAL result so far-it still needs to be sealed but for this one i wish i would have a perfect mat varnish.still not found.

I have been toying with the idea of using the 'raw' pulp too. The nuggets of lumpy pulp that is. Though for me it was to create rock surfaces (See my 'hell' rock scene in PMA - PaperMacheArt group files & my 'killer clowns hair). What a neat idea to use it as bowls.

This is WHY i rate you as a queen of paper mache, you have such inovitave ideas with bowls.

These whilst being experimental look awesome. Combined with your painting techniques they will become stunning i am sure.
