Children’s Crafts: Paper Mache Lizards : Paper Mache Lizard: Making Head

So, now that we've created the base for ourlizard we're going to give it some shape.

Shape in the head and shape in the body.

Rememberthat this is a sculpture so we want to be able to view it from all sides.

That meansthat it has to have dimension.

So, what we're going to do is we're going to attach the pipecleaner to the side of the head, remembering that this top circle here is the head, sothat it's extended out like this.

What we're going to do is we're just going to loop itaround, because want to give it some frame for the papier-m?ch?; which we'll eventuallydo.

I'm going to do that by kind of wrapping it around.

It doesn't have to be perfect.

Again, this is going to be covered up, but we want to make sure that it's strong enoughto hold the papier-m?ch?.

This could take one or two pipe cleaners to really give youa strong structure for creating the head and the body.

So, we're going to continue to wrapthis around.

I'm probably going to need one more going in the opposite direction on thehead; something in this direction here.

I'm going to wrap it up like this and back downto the head.

That's going to give us the shape for the head.

We're going to do the same thingfor the body, but more in a zigzag motion across the back.
