ek het haar gevra: 
"hoe bly jy so hoog in die lug in hierdie donker vlug? 
hoe dra jy jou olyftak met soveel swier in 'n lang gang sonder plesier?" 
... en sy het vir my gesê: "Liefde, net liefde wat my so hoog kan oplig!"

Paper Mâché Paste Recipe

This is the recipe for the Paper Mâché paste that I use with strips of paper.
  • 1 cup flour  
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt (help prevent mold)
Mix well until you get a thick glue-like consistency.


I normally cover my artworks with about 2 or 3 layers and then let it dry completely for a few days before I add another few layers. I let it all dry completely for a week or two before I start working on the final piece of art.
