A Paper Mache Dark Butterfly

By Danmonsterman @danmonsterman
I only have time to give you a little bit of this new paper mache project of mine.   I am making a sort of a lizard-like butterfly with the body of a woman and the face of a....well, not exactly sure how to describe the face yet.  You'll just have to wait and see.
You know the drill by now.   I crumpled balls into a torso (upper, right), hips (upper, middle), head (lower, middle), and a couple extras for who knows what.   You know I like to have extra paper mache balls around so that I can add details to the project.   As usual I used wire clothes hangers to put inside the legs, arms, and in this case the tail.   (Did you know that lizard-like lady butterflies have tails?  Well, they do.)   Sorry, it's hard to see the white clothes hangers clearly.

Here are the crumpled paper arms and legs.   I also twisted paper around the wire to make a long, sleek, bifurcated tail.

Here she is after I paper mached all of the parts.

Isn't she beautiful so far?
So why are people still making paper mache piggies?  I don't get it.
Thank you for stopping by.   See you soon.
