La Frida Catrina in paper mache

Hi everybody! I've been so busy lately running from one place to another and coming home to make stuff that I haven't been able to be in the computer much. I'm taking a 4 day workshop in a local museum. I'm learning to make traditional paper mache Catrinas. And guess whom I making into one? Frida of course!

She will have her own palette and a brush in case she wants to paint something ;)

She will have a hat too and a big pink dress.

But first I have to paint her white.

My house is a mess right now and we only have been eating chicken nuggets but it's been so much fun! There's paper everywhere and I'm still not finished.

But I managed to work on some dolls too ;)

They're not ready yet I still have lots to do but I thought It would be fun to show you some pics of the process. I'll post more pics when I'm done! (I just have to keep drinking coffee)

It just looks soo good :) Is great to work with papier machè. I like it a lot. My favorite thing is to make masks.
Want to see when "Frida" is done.
Have a so good wednesday. By the way, I noticed you are wearing glasses, they suit you.

I'm so impressed when a 2D artist is SO GOOD at 3D as well - I've just started looking at your work and am so impressed. Thanks for showing some of your progress too.
