Paper Mache Recipe

Paper Mache Recipe
Take 1 cup of water. Mix in 1/4 cup flour until it is thin and runny. Stir into 5 cups of lightly boiling water. Boil for 2-3 minutes gently. Let it cool down before you use it, don't want you to get burned.


Bowl of water
Nylon Stocking
1/4 c. dry wallpaper paste
1 c. water
Mixing bowl

Tear newspaper into strips. Soak newspaper in water overnight. Pour soaked paper into stocking and wring out. Place paper into bowl. In seperate bowl, mix smooth paste of wallpaper paste and water. Pour some paste over the paper and work it in with your hands, little by little until the paper mache feels like clay. Work around art objects (like a chicken wird frame). This takes a few days to dry...
