Step 1- Decide what bucket you're going to use.

Step 2- Decide if you want to decorate the bucket if you do you may look to step 3-5 for inspiration.

Step 3- I sculpted with cardboard and secured it with masking tape as well as covered all the cardboard with masking tape. Thus preparing the cardboard for paper mache.

Step 4- I then used a paper mache mixture of all purpose glue and water ( 2 parts glue 1 part water ) to paper mache the carboard with news papers.

Step 5- once the paper mache was dry I painted over it with acrylic paint.
