Here you can see why I am spending a lot of time thinking about cauldrons.......
I want to be able make this tower!!!
When I was very young we used to make heads by paper mache-ing balloons. Lots of newspaper and flour and water for glue. When the 'head' was thick enough and fully dried we would prick the balloon and be left with the shape we wanted.
Just like this...
I will use tiny water balloons and blow them up into different sizes, apply the paper mache, make lots of cauldrons and create the tower!
I will also try the balloon trick with air drying clay too.
Then today while I was mulling it all over I thought of.... Surely I can use the cast iron cauldrons I already have as moulds?
Plus I have a consignment of ping pong balls arriving tomorrow.
Ho, hum paint all the wood work and then begin to play!
