Well on Thursday (whilst watching the Beckii Cruel program) I managed to do the final layer of papier mache on the hat, including the circular indents on either side...
I kind of cheated there... I should have built up the layers around them so they were actually indented, instead I just created a circle with rolled up papier mache and then used flat bits of paper to plane out from it and make it look like it is indented!! (Does that make any sense?!)
And this evening I painted the first coat of black on the main body of it :D Makes me soo happy that it's coming together so well!! Although the paint has covered really well, I'm going to do a second coat to be on the safe side! Tomorrow, I will paint the underside and start work on the eyes :D
If all goes well, it may well be finished by tomorrow evening!!!
On another note, I bought the bits I need for Fran's box today too!! I'm going to make two... a solid one that doesn't open and a second one that opens to reveal his box weapon ^__^ (I'm not going to mention it here for those who don't know yet, spoilers and all that!) I'm excited about this and have found a great way to make it (I think!)
Ahh, this is coming together so darn well, I'm a happy bunny--I mean--froggy ^__^
