That is really beautiful. What type of paper mache or paper clay did you use?It looks nice and smooth.

Hi Ina, the technique I used is mainly layering on top of twisted newspaper, and then I apply a layer of homemade coating, which makes it look rather smooth. For the lower part, to accentuate the effect of reflection in the water, I admit having forced on the layers of varnish :)
