Last month's issue we covered an introduction to paper-mache. Now is the perfect time to get your elbows dirty and go outdoors!
Gather magazines, newspapers and masking tape. Crumbled the paper into balls of all sizes. Next, mold the newspaper balls as best you can to make it look like a dinosaur by attaching them together with masking tape. Cover your dinosaur with making tape as you see in my photos instructions. Rip out or cut out any imperfections and re-apply masking tape again to seal it.
Mix glue & water. 3 parts glue, 1 part water.
Divide 1 sheet of paper towel in 5 long pieces. Dip in one piece of paper towel at a time and apply evenly one layer of paper-mache. Tip: Allow 1 day to dry. Next day, you apply another coat of paper-mache. Allow another day to dry. Might take about 3 coats of paper-mache so be prepared to wait. Once dry, you can coat it with glue using your finger as an spatula. Allow 1 day to dry. Final step is the best step. Time to get dirty and paint it any color you desire. Have fun!
