This past week I completed three gargoyles for new papier mache workshops that I'm teaching in May.

The gargoyles are very similar in nature to the gargoyle I made over a year ago from water bottles and such with the only real difference being that were designed to be completed over the course of four evenings.

The completed props require 12 hours of work and are created from recycled cardboard, water bottles, magazines and newspaper.

Two of the pieces are traditional style gargoyles and the third piece is more of a dark statuary style, an angel of death type of piece. A complete tutorial will be available in the next several weeks.

Thanks everyone...the gargoyles stand about 20 inches tall with a wing span of over two feet. Yup, twelve hours...

Class One (3 hours) Design and build armature/wings from recycled materials
Class Two (3 hours) Apply multiple layers of strip mache to armature/wings
Class Three (3 hours) Apply papier mache clay to add bulk, definition and texture.
Class Four (3 hours) Paint

Twelve hours...ta da!

These are beautiful, Stoll. I wish I lived by you so I could take some of your classes...unless you're an ogre to your students:D
