Work in Progress-First of Spring II

Detail of a sculpture in progress by MJ Seal made from paper mache that resembles spiky, spring green tentacles breaking out of a gray, papery skin

After applying a bit more paper mache clay “First of Spring” is ready for it’s skin of paint-

After completely coating this piece in a thin layer of paper mache paste I added a second layer and peeled it back around the bases of the spikes growing up from the underlying canvas giving them the appearance of poking through a skin.

I also applied a layer to the sides and back of the pasted over canvas to hold everything together like a protective shell.
