Papier mache dog masks for Brett and Becky’s birthdays, to add to their collection of folk art (much of it made by his grandpa-Don)


Don’s very latest papier mache mask, Mickey Mouse, was worn (by Don) at his great-grandson’s birthday party. He pulled it off without a hitch. Max is still talking about it.


Christmas 2015, we all had so much fun with the menagerie of masks Don made out of papier mache.
