|How can we celebrate festivals without lights? ...I decided to make this camel table cum lantern to place in the living room while several guest visit us during this season.|
|Camel Table light|
For paper mache on such a big scale, I started with building and armature.

I got my kids to help me shred paper
|Preparing the paper mache|
Before starting to paint I have coated the camel with primer.

Here are some other completed snaps
I have decorated the top wooden plank by sticking a hand made paper with wood glue. Further, Have used thick red and golden ribbons to wrap around the tubing. I made net flower and leaves to add to the table.
This Camel is 4 feet in length X 1.7 feet in width X 2 feet in height. I have inserted power saving LED lights and fixed four wheels to drag the camel as per convenience as a center table, bed side stand/ night lamp or during barbeque nights on the terrace.
To decorate the face off the camel I have used beads, golden ribbon and golden net sheet.
I have stitched around an elastic the golden net and black mirror worked cloth, such that it can be easily removed and washed (during festivals with plenty of guests this does get dirty)
