so I decided to give it s go and see where it went.
(This was put together quite quickly, it's an easy way to have a little photo scene setter (if u will) for your little ones birthday party, this can apply to jungle themes, Safari, jungle book etc)
Step 1: MATERIALS
Measuring cup 1 cup
All purpose joint compound
Cool looking cardboard with a shape already I recommend the one that comes with eggs ( awesome)
Spray paint( sand) or block acrylic paint
Now these are the formulas you will need to complete this project:
Paper mache mixture:
All purpose flour
Bowl ( specifically for this , DO NOT USE THIS BOWL FOR ANYTHING WITH FOOD)
Tupperware with lid ( please don't use this for any thing else than this )
Joint compound 1 cup
1 cup of paper mache mixture
And refrigerate for 24 hours before use
It holds the mold faster and way easier to work with.
Shredded newspaper 1 cup
Pieces of cardboard 1 cup
Let all this sit for 24 hours , squeeze excess water out , keep doing this until you get a very fine almost nothing feel to it . When it's ready it'll look like little clumps of paper pour it in your clay mixture.
Step 2: So Much Cardboard ... and Tape
Step 3: Cover It
Step 4: Cover It in Paper Clay
Step 5: Dry, Decorate, Paint
Now Enjoy , and take lots of cute pics!
