Following the paint manufacturers instructions bake in oven and then enjoy boiled egg and soldiers for breakfast!

The beauty of papier-mâché is – if you don’t like it, stick something over the top!
Some of you may remember me posting a photo of a cardboard impala covered in a dark red paper ….
As much as I loved the red paper, something wasn’t working for me, so I found a lighter, brighter paper and covered it again. this time in a pretty blue.
But it was still lacking something. Eyes?
Some time ago I bought two candle holders from a charity shop; each with three roses on the base. I had intended using them for a mosaic but I thought they’d be perfect for this. Anyway, after enlisting the help of my husband and a Dremel I now had a pair of peepers.
Well, in actual fact I think they look like fluttery eyelashes!
