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.

    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!

    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.

    ok im not usually into anime but this is cool! ive been wantin to make somthin like this from a creature in Spawn :)

    Nice instructable- very clear. But I think you mean "rabid fangirl", not "rapid". :)
