What’s Your Pleasure?



Several weeks ago we spent a weekend cleaning and organizing our garage, during the process we took a few hours to photograph some of the papier mache props stored in our garage. The photo includes about 75% of the props that have been built over the past few years. Absent from the photo are zombie skulls, demon skulls, plain old regular skulls, the sentinels and 14 sets of ribs, arms and hands. 


Photographing the props was fun because they were displayed in a fashion that created some interesting juxtapositions as you don’t normally see frogs mixed with pumpkins mixed with gargoyles mixed with whatever.


The whole group of props sitting in our back yard reminded me of a huge papier mache garage sale. Slapping a price tag on each piece would have probably been easier than hauling everything back into storage.

  1. Scott, I just heard that somebody we know sold something of yours. I can’t believe it. That is so wrong. I understand also that classes ore out of the question. I completely understand. Let me know if another venue comes up for pumpkin classes. I was looking into it. I hope everything else is going smooth. Only 30 days till Halloween. There will be a display again this year, I hope?

  2. I really like your work and was very happy to see so many instructions. I used your recipe for clay and would like to know how long to expect it to take a project to dry? I just have a head right now, some spots are thick but even the thin spots feel no different after 12 hours. I even put my head outside overnight to dry and now he just feels wet and cold instead of warm and cold. I didn’t want to try the oven or a hairdryer because of the chemicals. Advice would be wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration, your work is awesome and I’m using you as a reference on my facebook 🙂
