Paper and Glue

I love working with paper and glue, aka paper machete.  This time I went bigger.  Using an old wicker basket as a mold, I taped on plastic, slathered it with vasoline, and then layered it with cut up paper bags and glue.  After many, many layers, I let it dry and painted it with a faux leather-look paint kit.  I call it a trough.  Not sure what I’ll use it for, but I like it.
