Today is a rest day for me. My doctor diagnosed me a bronchitis and a pneumonia. So I've taken the opportunity to make a round of all the blogs I follow. I though it would take 1 hour to do this but, in the end, it took me 3 hours... I guess I follow too much blog :-)
I wanted to build a new paper mache pumpkin for this year. I love paper mache but my talent with it is a bit limited. I just can't shape it exactly the way I want. So this year, I took a different approach and built a pumpkin with Aves paper mache powder. This stuff is exactly what I needed, all you need to do is add water to the powder until you get the consistency you want to work with (in my case, I mix water until it feels like concrete). I'm very happy with the result so far. I wasn't expecting it to look that good.
Compared to the pumpkin I did last year, this really is a good upgrade :-)
Once I'm done with this new pumpkin, I will be building my spider for SpiderFest 2010. I just hope I will get it done on time.
