Paper Mache

13 Oct

Have you ever played around with paper mache?  My mom would let us do this fun art project at home, it is easy to do and though a little on the messy side very cheap to produce. We would use the flour, water and newspaper method, usually using a balloon for shape.  My technique has changed a little bit, and I still think it is a lot of fun.

For recipes check out The Ultimate Paper Mache.  I like the one that uses glue.  A lot of good information on this blog.
