The pig begins

This is the pig, the open flap in its belly closed with cable ties: I'm cladding it in papier mache for strength. Thankfully various people are giving me a hand. I've made the paste using some flour that expired in 1998: see, you wouldn't cook with it but because I'm all about recycling, I have found a use for it! Actually, it's pretty gritty to touch in the papier mache. I'm also finding that the very fine chicken wire has a lot of sharp spikes that stick out through the mushy newspaper.

All this is taking place on our kitchen floor. Oh, how great it would be to have a studio of my very own!
