Hi Bunki,
We used 20 ounce soda/water bottles for the bodies. I mixed up plaster and
poured about a cup in each bottle to act as a weight. Our new elem art
teacher is going to try this and turn them into "bobble heads" using tennis
balls. But I loved using the instant paper mache, I did adda splash of white
glue to the mix. Tempera paint is great with these.
Have fun, i know I did!
