Introduction: Paper Mache Kero-chan

The definitive instructable on how to turn 2 dimensional fantasy into 3 dimensional reality, or the manner in which a rabid fangirl devotes herself to a beloved anime.

Step 1: Fiddly Part Which Requires Copious Squinting and Use of Imagination

Toilet roll, egg carton, tea bag box and newspaper fused together with masking tape create a raw third dimensional impression of my picture book reference. This is sad that this is my only memorabilia of the anime series.

Step 2: The Mess, But Undeniably Satisfying Mess

Lovely, grimy, messy newspaper is coaxed into a mouldable medium through the magical qualities of a concoction comprised merely of flour and water.

Step 3: Rendering of Coat

A soft paper towel finish makes Kero-chan look irresistibly cuddly.

Step 4: Plastering Stage

Liberally applied, a thick coat of white industrial house paint completes the form- don't underestimate cheap paint, says Jackson Pollock.

Step 5: Painting

My basic school bought acrylics...

Step 6: Pokemon Caught!

...and a generous dosing of gloss encase the creature in a sleep eternal.

Isn't kero-chan golden yellow and his tail and wings white?

different pics are different colors

i did choose a warm yellow paint, rather than a cool yellow-- but also the light is a bit warm here too, so he looks a tad orange. his whole tail is white?

well, only the fluff on his tail is white.

KAWAII! This is really creative and great job!

cool .. i guess but i hate that show , it wuz so boring!

did u use some type of gloss on it to make it shine?

Some type of wood varnish gloss I found in the garage~ but I guess you could just use glue.

That is really amazing! Adorable. You have talent, dear.
