"I enjoy most doing the detail. The paper really lends itself to unlimited detail.
I'm really interested in the Indians' material, physical and spiritual culture

Allen explained their technique: "It should not be confused with papier mache.
The two mediums are completely different. I call what we do 'cast paper sculpture'"
..."Some of them we create are lifesize
and some we scale down to 1/6 lifesize"
"These sculptures are posed as standing nude figures
and limited detailed animals with no ears, tails or hair"
"We transform them by sculpting on top of them - creating detail
with soft and hard paper we make in various thicknesses and textures.
"We have really enjoyed the development of our fine art techniques over the years
and have created a process that is worth sharing.
There are many artists and sculptors who we believe
will enjoy this medium as much as we have."
