This section is the heart of the book. It describes in detail how to make five different kinds of papier- and cloth-mâché projects. I've tried to give you some variety. The Basic Monster will work for any potential monster maker. The Monster Marionette is a variation of the Basic Monster for those of you who feel that art should be functional as well as pretty. The Monster Trophy is perfect if you want something amazing over the mantel. If monsters aren't your thing (maybe this book was a gift-someone gave it to you because you are a little "quirky" and "artistic"), and you want something a little more traditional, go for the Monster Traditional Piggy.

If you are one of those mischievous young boys who love to bug Little Sister (but you don't want to put forth too much effort), the Monster Ugly Doll project is for you. I've also added a "Special Halloween Section" (p. 133) for those of you who want art pieces for that particular season.
