Clay form for paper mache

I spent a good portion of today making this clay sculpt of an owl. It's about 2 feet tall. 
Now that the sculpt is done this guy will be covered in saran wrap and we will duplicate him several times using paper mache. This is a great technique for making very light, durable, and CHEAP replicas. While putting down the mache you can use butter knives and things to really press in crisp details. Just remember to let your clay become somewhat hard(not dry hard) before mache-ing it or you will squish your sculpture.
