If I had time and took up a hobby, it would be paper maché. Ever since I saw the work of Nives Cicin-Sain, I realized that paper maché figures could be beautiful. They are not the lumpy newspaper figures that you see in grade school projects. The artist uses toilet paper to get a smoother surface texture. She is very creative and even uses shoes as part of her sculptures. I have never seen paper maché done like this before.
If I won the lottery, paper maché like this would be one of my hobbies.
