Russian Floral Hanging Elephant
A beautifully handcrafted paper mache Christmas ornament.
Each ornament is made from recycled newspaper and paste using a wooden mould. It is then left outside for several days to dry. It is then sanded and ready for its first layer of paint. There will be at least two base coats and then the intricate designs are added layer by layer.
Once the final layer of design is dry the ball is varnished several times and the hanger added.
Each ornament is hand-painted and is completely unique.
