Back to Grade School

If things really do come full circle, I may be in trouble because lately I’ve had a desire to create something with papier-mâché! I started this bowl today and was about to put my supplies away when I thought of taking a photo for my blog. 
The jar holds my homemade paste — flour, water, and teaspoon of salt. The upside-down green bowl was covered with a plastic bag and became my mold. Numerous layers of torn newspaper strips were applied to that with the sponge brush. It must now dry thoroughly before I can remove it to see how sturdy it may be. I’ll post again when it’s dry.

It's been forever since I did paper mache. The last time I used a large balloon. This looks like a great deal of fun, Barbara. Hope you share the finished product/bowl.

I have never done paper mâché successfully. I guess I need to try it again! LOL

I have never done paper mache'. However, I have an urge to decoupage. On rocks of all things. Maybe I'll add a little interest to the pond area.
