doe re mi, a paper mache' deer head

After admiring some of the lovely faux ceramic animal heads on the market lately (these are from Williams-Sonoma), I had a'hankerin' to make my own, but in a lighter and easier to assemble material- paper mache'!
My original plan was to paint my dear doe in gloss white to mimic the look of ceramic, but then I had the idea to use sheet music. A trip to the thrift store left me with a book on harmony (which perhaps I should have read before ripping to shreds) to cover my deer with.
And of course I must include a process shot, because what sort of DIYer would I be if I didn't?
She came a long way, huh?

A handsome contemporary styled classic piece for a sculpture. The look of it complements my house at its best. Already got complimented for my taste and style.
