Nikkii Daniels uses old newspaper to transform tree trunks into intriguing sculptures that resemble human faces. First, she takes the old newspaper and soaks it in water. This maks it easy for her to mold the material into different shapes, as she presses the wet pulp on to the bark of the tree. After the newspaper dries Nikkii is able to paint the mud to enhance the design and make it look like a real part of the tree.

    How does this hold up in snow and rain, and is it easily removable without damaging the tree?
