Beautiful papier-mache crafts
For the preparation of beautiful and unusual dolls inthe beginning of the 16th century, a kind of art called papier-mache appeared, which in translation means torn or chewed paper. Over the years, this technique was used to make decorative stucco molding, mirror frames, candlesticks, toys, trays and snuffboxes. Crafts made from papier-mache are very beautiful things that can serve as an excellent interior decoration or addition to your style. There are two ways of making items made from papier-mâché. The first is the gluing of torn paper layers. The second - modeling of a mixture of glue with torn wet paper.
The first way
Pieces of torn paper are glued onprepared form. You can use any paper, the main thing is that it should be soft. Mixed pasting will be an ideal option for this method of making papier-mache crafts. Layers of paper should be at least eight, alternate white paper with colored paper, this is necessary in order not to confuse how many layers have already been applied. Gluing should be done gently, slightly slipping pieces of paper on top of each other. Make sure that they do not wrinkle, every two layers need to be dried well before proceeding.
The second way
To prepare the mass, newsprint is taken,cuts or tears into small pieces and is filled with water. Ideally, it's good to use a mixer, but you can do it yourself. It is necessary to pour the paper with hot water and leave to soak for three hours, then knead as a dough until a homogeneous mass is obtained, drain excess water and add a paste mixture with glue. And knead until the weight is slightly sticking to your hands. This "dough" can be stored in a cool place for a couple of days.
