Papier Mache' Pleasures

Reclining cat by "H" - grade 5
 The sculpture center recently expanded out taking over the painting table - which happens each time we get going with papier mache'. It can't be helped. CBMS 5th graders are awash with the stuff. Aliens and animals are popping up - once in a while a balloon actually pops - and the joy of the goo makes mess-lovers very happy.
 The clay storage area (the "ware shelf") is also succumbing to mache-in-progress, and we find that the posts for the kiln are especially good for holding gooey sculptures up out of their own puddles.
The suspense is building - will there be time before the sculpture center closes for the year to complete this work? Clay closes first (in two 1/2 weeks) but who's counting?
Look! Yesterday's papier mache' cat caught today's needle-felted guinea pig!
