He also got some eyehole/brows to amp up the eyes a little. The eyes are smaller than they really should be and I felt like it needed a little emphasis. Pretty easy to add a few rolled up newspapers around where the eyes will go. I paper mached over them just to make it a little smoother. But painting will be important here. Bert also got the back paper mached just to complete the whole thing.
I got a new can of Great Stuff and made a tongue to put in the mouth and painted it a bright red.
I couldn't resist. I put the pieces of Bert together...a bit. I put in his eyes, tongue, and a side of teeth. HE LOOKS AWESOME!!! I lurve him *sigh*
