About: Yo! i am Varsha and i am from India, Andaman. i like making and discovering new things.

you can make some sculptures of extraordinary paper mache to decorate any room of your house even the garden.you can make a full gang just like this one!!

Step 1: Things You Need:

1) you would be in need of tissues or toilet paper.
2) white glue
3) water
4) brushes
5) marker or pencil (optional)
6)Newspapers or any object (you wanna recycle)

Step 2: Make a Glue Mixture:

To paste any paper or any tissues on anything you need to make a mixture of 3 parts of glue and 1 part of water, this will help you to paste the tissues on the thing you are going to recycle.If you aren't able to choose the item for recycling you can just use some newspaper. rolling the newspapers or crushing it into the shape of that object you wanna make would just give you a base or skeleton of the object.

Step 3: Pasting the Paper & Letting It Dry:

Paper pasting or pasting the tissues will take a lot of time you don't have to do it with a lot of carefulness.You could easily make it.
As pasting takes time drying would turn out to take be a lots of time too.after covering the object fully let it dry for a day.

Painting is really easy in this kind of work, acrylic paints works best.

Step 5: DONE!!!:

yay! you have made one!

    I know you can make a piñata with a balloon and that stuff but how do you sculpt this, I love doing paper mâché and have been wanting to do it more but I don't need anymore piñatas and these would be perfect. Please help.

    yeah sure...
    it's simple..
    first of all you need to make a base or the inner part of the paper sculpture, it could be made using some plaster boards and card boards or anything that could give a support to the sculpture.
    Then you must stick the newspapers to it, using sticky tape.
    paste the paper mache!
    and you made your sculpture!
