these boots are not made for walking

I started off with my own wellingtons. They served as moulds and were removed when the first paper layer was dry.
Then I tore book pages for strips. Three different books were used for slightly different coloring and typography.
Fringes were cut with scissors and each strip carefully curled.
Getting down to business.
I wanted a "hairy" look.  Strip after strip was pasted on...
...after strip
...after strip
...almost there!
I'm taking part of a group show at Galleri L2 in Stockholm and the theme is shoes! I'll show the finished pair here tomorrow :)
