You could also use plaster craft (the bandage material) instead of paper
Mache and you project sounds ...."wish I were in Nashville.

Subject: Red Grooms Lesson Ideas-THANKS!

You guys are wonderful. Thank you for taking time out of your busy
end-of-the-year day to e'mail me great ideas. Tell me your thoughts on
this:

The Grooms exhibit is going to feature artwork (I'm imagining sketches,
but
I could be wrong) for his Fox Trot Carousel that he created for the
Nashville waterfront. I believe he even created some mock carousels to
give
to the person that cast the actual carousel car. I thought it would be
neat
if my students were given the chance to create a paper mache carousel. I
was
thinking of giving them a dowel drilled into a block of wood, create a
foil
armature, wrap with paper mache and paint. For display, the whole class
could assemble their carousels together on a Lazy Susan to form a
complete
carousel.

My questions now are:
Have any of you ever tried such a thing?
What do you think are the best paper mache methods, recipes, etc.?
Theme for the carousel ideas (Grooms did people and things from TN
history)...?

You guys are awesome! Thanks again for your help!!
