Term 6 - Week 5: Papier Mache Sculptures

Making papier mache is such a fun way to create sculptures and this week I am going to show you just how easy they are to make!

To make the paste you need water, flour and salt. You will need strips of newspapers to dip in the paste and an object (like a balloon) to stick your pasted paper to!

Follow my step by step instructions below:

 

1. A step by step guide to making Papier Mache!
2. Tear your newspaper into strips.
3. Mix1 part flour and 1 part water together.
4. Add 1 teaspoon of salt to the mixture.
5.Choose your object., balloons are a great choice
6. Dip your strips of paper in the paste!
7. Apply lots of layers ... the more the better!
8. Blot excess liquid with a paper towel.
9. Let it dry... add more layers if necessary!
10. Decide what it's going to be and paint it!

Here are some udeas of things you could make... but you could make anything!

Papier Mache scupltures take time to make so remember to build up your layers and leave to dry fully before you attempt to paint.

Have fun and don't forget to send me through some photos!
