Diane prefers a smoothened finish over a roughened, traditional one in her paper mache pieces. This takes
multiple applications of drywall compound and meticulous sanding on top of the paper mache structure itself. As the
dog statues are large and heavy, Diane begins their inner construction using recycled bottles, metal rods, and pieces of
rigid foam insulation for strength. In the past she has provided instruction on using her techniques.
