There's a bunch of different appoaches to paper mache, this method has always worked pretty good for me.https://www.instructables.com/id/Paper-Mache/1. Make a form2. Mix paste (two parts water, one part flour)3. Tear up strips of newspaper4. Coat paper with paste5. Apply paper to form, overlap strips6. Allow to dry7. Apply another layer8.

mix water with glue powder and apply it on paper with a brush. its that simple!
As a kid I remember tearing newspaper into strips. It tears easily verticaly but not so well horizontaly because of the way the paper is made. I would then fill a big bowl with water and fabric softener. I once made a diorama for Stompers (wind up 4x4s from the 80s) with water, starch and white glue over a frame of wood and chicken wire. Experiment and have fun!
