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.
