ur tutorial is awesome...love ur fish craft... painted nicely..may i ask which paint u used? as they r giving glossy touch.
I use schoolar paints , but finished with a polyurethane varnish
<p>what is schoolar paint?</p>
Just great. I go do that with my kids. I know about paper mache but sometimes i need some nice ideas and you gave me some. <br> <br>Thanks again
thanks to you. <br>
any supplement for powder cast? <br> <br>and do we have to use both glue and pva glue?
you may not use the cast, but it takes longer to dry <br>I prefer to use my flour-based glue because it is more docile and PVA glue sticks more to the paper pulp
Adorable cute lil charms:)<br>can you please elaborate on how you got the &quot;smooth&quot; finish?<br>Also, it would be great if you can share your paper pulp recipe with more details:)
to get the smooth finish i sand the paper mache fishes with a plank of wood with sandpaper glued to it. <br>You can cover the flaws with plaster and sanded again. <br> <br>The paper recipe is very simple, you can start testing the consistency and add more glue, plaster or pva glue as you want.
