SCULPTING WITH PAPIER MACHÊ

I HAVE BEEN SCULPTING WITH PAPIER MACHÊ FOR 11 YEARS.
MY INTEREST IN RECYCLING USED PAPERS,AS CARDBOARD BOXES,EGG BOXES,PAPERS THAT WOULD BE THROWN AWAY, DOING MY PART IN RECYCLING FOR THE PLANET.I ONLY MIX THE PAPERS WITH PVA GLUE, NOT USING FLOUR.
MY SCULPTURES ARE SOLID PAPER
THERE HAS TO BE SOME PATIENCE IN THE DRYING PROCESS THAT TAKES AROUND 6 TO 9 MONTHS, DEPENDING ON THE SCULTURE.
I THINK THE RESULTS PAY OFF !!
