A little punk, a little androgynous, maybe even a little other wordly, Rom is a unique one-of-a-kind paper mache bowl. His face was sculpted onto a balloon form by layering on paper pulp clay and multiple layers of tissue paper, paste, and glue. Rom's silver skin and every strand of his multicolored hair were decoupaged on. Everything in fact, except two small dots on the eyes were created by cutting and arranging paper over the form. To give the hair some dimension, cotton string was glued onto the form before the decorative outer layer was applied. The bowl stands 8 and 1/2 inches tall with a bowl opening 4 and 1/2 inches in diameter and a weight of 14 ounces. Several coats of water based varnish were applied to protect the finish, but please do not expose to liquids.

Frequently asked questions about NoEmptyHeads

I love making custom headbands. Customers are welcome to give me as much or as little input as they like. I typically send photos of potential materials and design options when appropriate.

I don't usually create custom paper mache items because of the time involved can be extensive as each layer of work needs time to dry completely. But if time is not an issue, I would be happy to make a custom paper mache item.
My headbands are fairly durable, but because of the adhesives that are used you should avoid extreme heat conditions that might melt or cause the bond to weaken.

My paper mache items are very durable, but should only be cleaned with a damp cloth. Liquids should not be used or stored in the bowls. Some of the cover papers may lighten if left in the sun over a long time.
The headbands I use are standard 1" adult headbands. I assume the wearer will be wearing the band just behind the ears and my pieces are balanced for that. If you have special sizing concerns please contact me about a special order. If I can, I am happy to make an adjustment. I can't resize an already completed piece, but in some cases I may be able to duplicate it or offer a close alternative.
