Reduce Reuse and Recycle - Ballerina

The unfinished ballerina!  She is made from all recycled materials.


Again another unfinshed product to show.  I keep telling myself that I will finish things but when do you get the time!  The base of this is a wooden toy that had a straight bit sticking out, which I used for the leg, for the other leg I used a bit of old plastic and some newspaper.  The skirt is made from the front page of a magazine and folded to look this way.  I made the base of the body with scrumpled newspaper and maskiing tape, the arms from old straws (as you can see they are unfinished and the head is unfinished).  The reason I haven't finished it yet is I have to make more papier mache pulp and it is quite time consuming.  The head is what the rest of the body looked like before I sanded it.  I am unsure if I should paint it or not, but my three year old will probably say pink pink pink!


Just a few different angles.  Obviously when it is finished I will have to sand the base and polish it up a bit.



So have to shape bottom of arms and hands and finish head.
Anways munchkins are hungry, feed me.....
