As some of you might know I've been riding the DIY wave for my sons jungle book party this year, primarily because we couldn't really find any original vintage cartoon jungle book stuff , I had to scour the Internet for hours to try to find things , and when we did, they were no longer available, collectors item, it was just something someone "pinned" sometime, so I basically just decided to make him his very own jungle book inspired stuff? So I decided to make his a jungle book inspired wall prop with his favorite characters and favorite scenes, this will be used at the entrance for his party then used in his jungle room. So here's what I used:
Acrylic paint or tissue paper
Paper mache paste:
1 cup flour
3/4 cup water
All this stuff can be found around your house or kitchen, this is a little awesome project
Step 1: Free Hand Your Letters
Step 2: Cover in Your Paper Mache
Step 3: Paint or Cover in Tissue
Step 4: Arrange Images, Glue and Seal
Step 5: QUESTIONS
A: no. Ive tried it with the DIY version and it's just not the same, :(
Q: Can I use other materials to make the letters then apply same mod podge pics?
A: yes. You can use anything really as long as the mod podge stuff stays the same
Q: Will the ink from printer smear if I apply the mod podge on it?
Q: Do I have to let it dry between coats?
A: yes! Make sure each coat is dry before reapplying.
Q: Will it bubble, tear if I put too much mod podge?
A: depends, in my experience if you put more than 2 even coats , you might risk messing up the picture your working with.
Q: Can you hang these letters?
A: yes! Thumbtacks
