I made the originally planned shape out of the sponge and  clown shoe but there was a few parts that didn't quite work or fit together,  some parts needed covered, so I thought it would be best to cover it with paper mache as I could build up a better shape with this. The shoe will also be a more solid structure with this as it was quite flimsy before and couldn't keep its shape very easily.

The shape almost reminded me of a clown shoe so I thought it could be useful to use this as a base to work around when making my final model.
