Papier-mâché Art You Can Make
Greetings to everyone! I hope the summer has been kind to you and you are all well. The tribe and I are doing splendidly, each busy with work & life, in fabulous spirits and thankfully healthy! After my July of lemonade sugar highs and wicked midsummer dreams - I am back at the helm of this handmade blog ready to steer it into some do-it-yourself goodness. Follow along!
First up is DIY Papier-mâché project - or as we pronounce it, Paper Maché - which actually means chewed paper. It is sculpting with a paste made of flour and water adding shreds of newspaper to bind with. Create whimsical art for the home, wearable art, functional pieces for storage, or a craft to make and sell.
