This is the third Santa I created entirely from paper mache, except for a small amount of paper clay on his face. I finished him in January of this year. He is still one of my favorites. I really love his beard, and I like the way his hood and cloak turned out.
When I was painting him, I couldn't decide what color I wanted to use for his hood and cloak, so I used a different color on the hood, and coordinated it with the color of his robe. He holds a wreath trimmed with red berries in one hand.
