Paper yarn bowl

I padded the inside of the crochet bowl to form a sphere and again used cotton pulp paper clay to cover the lower half of this sphere.

I left it to dry. When completely dry I dampened the inside and removed some of the paper yarn to reveal the imprint remaining within the clay. I then gilded the imprint with gold flakes.
