Not a Cake

This is an upside down papier-mâché bowl resting to dry on a real bowl being used as a form. It started as an empty cardboard egg carton ripped into small pieces soaked in water a few hours. Then the glop was kneaded into a more pulpy mixture with a bit of green food coloring and a few tbsp tacky glue. It may take days to dry and finally be ready for painting. We shall see!
