For all you Little Shop of Horrors fans out there.
Step 1: Paper Mache Mask Structure
I use just flour and water and newspaper strips for the glue, at a consistency a little runnier than pancake batter. At least 3-4 layers, making sure it dries in between. Then my last layer I use white tissue paper, just laying it on top of the last newspaper layer (it absorbs right onto it). this makes it dry white and easy to paint.
Step 2: Cut Shape of Mouth
Step 3: Paint and Teeth
paint the head and lips with craft paint. (or paint first, let everything dry, then add teeth.) spray paint with a clear coat to seal it all. this is important, as paper mache is delicate if it gets rained on!
Step 4: Add Foliage
Step 5: Make Flower Pot
I didn't take a lot of before pictures for this part, but it's easy! I bought a solid laundry basket and cut the bottom off. spray paint it terra cotta color. I cut straps out of felt to wear it like suspenders, tied them onto the pre-existing handles. then hot glue brown felt around the rim, and hot glue fake plants and moss to that.
