I made a paper mache bowl!
My bowl is very flexible so I would recommend not putting heavy things in it.
Also this bowl is not water proof.
Step 1: Making the Plaster
This recipe is very easy. But messy be prepared
You will need:
1/2 a cup of flour
and a 1 1/2 cups of water
one medium sized bowl
First pour the flour in to the bowl, then add the water. Stir.
Step 2: Starting
Blow up the balloon to the size you want your bowl to be.
Then put the balloon into the bowl and tape it there.
Cut the newspaper into strips now.
Step 3: Covering the Balloon
Take the strips and dip them into the plaster.
Pinch the strip and pull down gently this should take the left over plaster off.
Then cover the top half of the balloon.
leave it to dry over night
Step 4: Painting
In the morning pop the balloon the balloon should come right out.
After cut the bowl so the edges are level to each other.
Then you can paint your bowl any color you want.
You are done, thank you for making my project!
