Next Step

My cowboy got his first application of papier-mâché today. So far, so good, but the hardest steps are yet to come. I need a hat, outfit, face, hands and feet. Some of this may come about by cardboard additions, then painting. Plus, I’m going for bowlegged and paunchy. Lol! This may take awhile!

LATER UPDATE: I’ve worked more on him since this photo and decided I cannot make hands! So his pose has changed. My husband says he looks like Popeye the Sailor now, but I think he still has cowboy potential!

**FINAL UPDATE**: I’m completely over trying to make this look like a cowboy; or for that matter, anything else! But I have to keep trying to create, and I hope next time to share something successful.

Your husband may be on to something, but I think he looks like a bow legged weight builder/weight lifter.

I think you should do several of these. Maybe make one a Sumo Wrestler -since that is what this is starting to look like to me.

Go with your gut, and I know he'll turn out to be a splendid bowlegged cowboy. Looking forward to seeing him finished:)
Keep Smiling!

I just don't see a cowboy. I think I see The Swamp Monster...do you remember that one from the 50s.

Oh geez. You really should stop trying to make him into what YOU want him to be and go with who HE wants to be. I'm telling you, think Halloween!
