Step 2: Create Papier Mache mixture
Step 3: Start applying
Step 4: Drying Process
The balloons will shrivel up...and die, I mean dry. No point in trying to remove them.
Step 5: Base Coat
Step 6: Start Painting!
This image shows the first layer of color. Let each dry before your second coat. At this point, I added hooks made out of a piece of wire. Almost like an upside down "T" with a loop. insert into the hollow planet so the top of the "T" sits within each side of the hole.
Step 7: I'm ready for my closeup
With two coats of base color, sponge on a second darker or lighter color to bring out the texture. This works best when the planet is not fully dry. Have fun, you can't really make any mistakes here.
Spray a gloss coat on to give the planets some shine and protection.
