Covering the whole surface with colored construction-paper papermaché. The use of children’s art materials doesn’t only open memories of child-like processes; Children’s art supplies are extremely easy to use, give good results, are forgiving, dry quickly, and are non-toxic. Really, they are advanced. The various colors remind how many layers of paper have gone on too. The surface finish on this is very solid now; I’m both please with the design and the manufacture of it. I like the texture the squares of paper make; its very textile I think. Ultimately I ought to paint it over one color to make it waterproof; perhaps a light light blue, over a pale rose…. with some gold dust highlights… meanwhile it is really nice to be working in all this color!
