This is an handmade papier mache sculpture that is also an original painting, by Tara Fortin. This is not made from a mould.
First, I create the bunny head by building a sturdy cardboard shape. Then layers and layers of papier mache (paste covered paper strips) are laid over one an another to create a hard sculpture. It is a very slow process as the paper strips must dry completely between layers.
Once the shape is complete, it is primed and then I paint with artist's acrylic paints. After the painting is complete I add a glossy layer of varnish for protection.
I added a hanger to the back of the sculpture so it is ready to hang. Signed on one edge.
Size of sculpture is: 7 inches tall (17.5cm)
