ek chidiya

working with paper has been a rush! i am trying to teach myself papier mache. the last time i may have done some must have been as a kid. I remember making terrible messes. And poor ma indulged me, while cringing inwardly at all the extra work she had to do cleaning up.

of course i had to begin with this little birdie. chidiya has turned out very rudimentary. i used paper pulp to make her and then painted over with acrylics.
