I wanted to build a Pinata that could withstand some very "celebratory" people. This Pinata was made in my basement. Due to the drying times between layers, it took over 3 weeks to complete. This was a summer in SC., so you know it was hot hot hot! Imagine how long it would take in more cold and humid climates?!
The first step of course is to decide what you want your Pinata to be. Here is the sketch of my Pinata this was for my wonderful wife's 30th birthday. This is a design that she drew on everything during her teenage years, she even has a tattoo of it.
