Step 5: Paper Mache

Picture of Paper Mache
Tear up a ton of newspaper into strips and dip them in your paper mache glue. Once again, I use a mixture of flour and water (there's no exact ratio that I'm aware of, just mix it so that it's a little on the thick side). Give the whole thing a coat or two and set it outside to dry.

I found the best mix is 1 part flour and 6 parts water. Mix and then boil for 3 minutes, and then cool. This makes a realy nice thick sticky goo ready for the paper.

2 parts water to 1 part flour is the mixture ratio commonly used
