Make Day of the Dead paper mache sculptures

In this tutorial, we learn how to make day of the dead paper mache sculptures. First, you will make the paper mache sculptures into different body shapes, then use a sharp knife to carve along the sculpture. Use different paints and colors to make the characters more believable and realistic. Use a thick paper mache when making these, because you will lose a lot of layers when you are thinning it down and shaving it into shape. When finished, you will attach the different pieces of body parts together with more paper mache, and then clip it into shape so it can dry. After it is dry, shape the parts you connected and enjoy your sculptures!
