We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
Papier-Mache is an inexpensive and relatively easy craft project. Recycled newspaper is ideal for the paper component and you can even make the paste!
Newspaper (you can use a mixture of newspaper and lightweight, brown paper bags)
Mixing the Adhesive
There are many different ways to make the adhesive for papier-mache, but three main types.
Flour and Water Paste- Three Methods
NOTE- These glue mixtures may not produce long-lasting results. The flour mixtures can mold, especially in humid climates. A couple drops of Wintergreen essential oil can make the paste last longer.
Wallpaper Paste (contains a fungicide to prevent mold)
NOTE- Unlike flour and water mixture, wallpaper paste is toxic so do not use with children.
