how to make a paper mache paste tiny figure
I saw this on Martha Steward and thought ooooo to bad its again too expensive. I really love her site and all her crafting projects, but they are always to expensive for commen people like me and i never have those materials at home -S But i love it so much ,so i thought why not make it of scaps materials that eveybody has as a crafting girl already and making more stronger and durable, so it will be cheaper too;-D
Only one notition because of making it more durable it cost you a lot of more time though. ,but then you have more time to enjoy your little creation of your crafting.LOL
she used this only on little stands of a half polysterne ball ,) but i think you can do so much more with it.
so this is the first figure later on there will be an other tute of an other figure i saw of Margaret and the others so please be alert of the next story and tute. And i make a tute of my stand i have maked,;-D
i hope you liked it and i've you have still questions feel free to ask!!!;-D
P/S the time is without drying time!
Now you must make the the muzzele when you wil make the rabbit. fold the wirein the twisted neck , straight upwards in a loop , that you must make flatten for the muzzle and do this twice.
make an other twist around the head .
See the first drawing.
the paper mache paste recipe:
Because you make tiny figyres , and because this isn't be dureable for a long time, make small part if this.
whithout frigde you can use it 2 or 3 days.
Using a frigde you can use it till a week. then its really spoiled.
take 25ml flour
take 20 ml water
take 25 ml wood glue.
put the flour in a bowl and stirr the water and glue trought each other till you wil become a smooth paste.
Then its ready to apply in thin layers on your project.
o work a little bit faster you can use a hair dryer.
but not to hight the dryposition stand, because it goes not good.
low stand and little by little. like the thin layers.
but you can put the figure to like as a dip;-D
it become to look like a fritter, with very strange lumps and bumps.;-D
the front side of the rabbit
the fun part:
painting them, withacrylic paint.
Do'nt do like me, i take at first a light colour on the paste, Not smart at all, it doesn't covering it up with one layer.
so its much smarter and i think you're all are,LOL paint the whole figure of yours with with paint.
and then the light colour of your own choise.Let dry and add a ponpon on the back of your rabbit.
