Papier Mache masks

Based on a cardboard box, deconstructed and reformed into the right shape with gaffa tape, then strips of newspaper and PVA glue to make a strong, plastic finish. Takes about a day and costs very little!

Paisley stars!

That’s the other thing I’ve been doing this weekend… I was looking in to getting these printed on fabric but custom print fabric is REALLY expensive!

This week I have mostly been drawing paisley (which you can see later) and writing little songs. Also I have been making the drum tracks myself by hitting random objects with biros.

This one is about the interesting, cockney-rhyming-slang phrases people use for bingo, which amuse me

and this one is about men showing you their hairy chests, uninvited.

OK I am maybe getting a bit obsessed with the paisley now and should stop and read a book or something. You have to admit it’s pretty though. I like a that it’s so organic, and although there are recurring shapes you see in commercial patterns it’s really creative and not at all restrictive – except you have to be neat or it doesn’t work at all..

There was a book called “The Owl Service” by Alan Garner, which I read when I was young and it haunted me. A girl on her own in the attic of a dark house, compulsively tracing the owl patterns on an old plate, waiting for something terrible to happen..

70s paisley

We used to have wallpaper very much like this. Everyone hated it 🙂
