In life we all have goals, whether those be short term or long term goals. We set goals because we as humans like to feel accomplished. There are many more reason for setting goals, one more reason is to show how hard your work ethic is. For this project I had a lot of goals. Some I know I will achieve and some I know I won’t. Even some of these goals they won’t come out like how I pictured it in my head. Some of my early on goals were to create a paper mache animal and paint it. This project will help me with getting better at art, I think I am good, but paper mache I needed work on and this project helps. I will evaluate my success by how my final turns out.

Also my mentor helped me decide most of the things for my project and discussed what would be the best choices. Those were the sources I used.
Application of information-
When applying and learning about what paper mache was the project just seemed to be easier to do because I understood it more. I used all my information to help me make this project. I used the liquid starch idea to make the paste which helped me because it made the project more sturdy. I used the idea of having fans on the object while drying so it will dry faster, so I can work harder. Also, I used many more ideas like spray painting it, and using acrylic paints. The spray paint would be a top coat while the acrylic paint was for details like patches of hair and his eyes. Other things I learned and used was to put items around him that a dog would have, such as a bowl,ball, and a squeaky toy ( I used all ). Many of these decisions left me there thinking if these were the best choices for my project. Making these decisions and using this information will affect my project either way by making it better or worse, hopefully I chose the right decisions on all of these. While making these decisions some of my goals will change because of the way I do something, or I will have the picture in my head change. My goal might also change because if this task is a harder than I thought I will need more practice, but if its easy my project should be headed for success!
Achieving the goal-
