Paper Mache Haunted Graveyard

Paper Mache Haunted Graveyard

Created Oct. 2018

I created this little miniature paper mache set as decoration for my desk on Halloween. The base is some dense foam covered with kraft paper. The tree was started by using several pieces of wire that were twisted together to form the roots, trunk, and tree limbs. From there, it was covered with kraft paper and a glue mix until the shape was achieved. The gravestones were created fully with paper mache. Both the stones and the tree were finally coated lightly with paper clay and allowed to dry. I used acrylic paint to paint the ground, tree, and stone before adding the moss to finish the piece.
