In February I was asked to make some piñatas for the 2014 Jour de la Terre campaign. It was a job that needed to be done quickly, and as I already had several other contracts underway, I made them mostly in the AM hours.
I maybe had worked with paper mache as a young child in school, but haven't touched it since. I knew that trying to learn how to make the forms asked of me with that process would be too much of a learning curve given the time contraints, so I went with what I knew best: carving it out of foam. The piñatas didn't need to actually be functional, so we were safe!
Full credits for the project can be found here.
Here are some pics of the steps involved:
