Great progress has been made today in the construction of Ganesha. I’m taking a trip back to a land of construction paper and glitter – that’s right, paper mache. Oh yeah, I’m cool like that.
I don’t know why, but I love paper mache. I hate working with the goop, how it never fully comes off of my gloves ending with having to throw them away much sooner than they should be. But I love forming something out of nothing. Of taking recycled items and making something completely new and functional. Cardboard, newspaper, and a little (okay, a lot of) paint. Mm. Good, good stuff.
