Shrunken Heads

This trio of Shrunken Heads were created using paper, glue, paper clay, and string. The heads started out as balls of paper which were then given shape with a handmade paper clay. This same paper clay was used to make the variety of beads used. The string and beads were dyed with diluted acrylics and coffee to get the desired color.
 Ends of the string were frayed to create a worn out look
Tooth picks were also used, not only for decoration, but also to create a hole for the string to be 'sown' in.
