Three Assemblages with Found Objects & Recycled Materials

sculpture, project
I used doll hands for his gloves.
I want to preserve the earth's resources as much as you do, and (like you) I try to save money and re-use things. These three sculptures may not be your cup of tea, but they're each different and I hope you find them interesting!

The first is a papier mache superhero. Doesn't he
look like he knows what he's doing? His bandy legs
make me laugh.
When the paste was dry, I painted him with acrylics
and then collaged on a few bright magazine pieces.
I sealed the piece with acrylic medium.
The next altered art sculpture is terribly weird!        
An old duck decoy, some plastic dinosaur legs,
a doll head, and part of a toy with wheels.

Hell On Wheels, by Paula Guhin

The last assemblage or altered art sculpture today is simply a plastic
 jug, cut and reassembled with other plastic jug parts added.

An altered art project that's easy to make.



  1. Each weird and wonderful in its own way. I'm always in awe of your ability to push boundaries yet find balance and unity in a project. All with a touch of humor. Keep it coming.

    1. I am so glad to know you, even if it's electronically. You light up a day with your kindness. Truly.
