40 DIY Paper Mache Ideas To Take On

The art of “Papier-mâché” or paper mache goes back to 1725 Europe when the crafty technique appeared as a cheaper simpler alternative to carved wood architectural pieces. The material itself is a composite one, made from different paper pieces or pulp which is bound with adhesives such as glue, starch or wallpaper paste. Sometimes, for extra strength the composition is reinforced with textiles. The material is usually placed over a metallic or wooden armature which dictates the form, which is later on  finished with lacquer. The right composition depends on the desired consistency and on the complexity of the project itself. Ultimate Paper Mache offers a list of experimented paper mache compositions from which you can opt for the right one for you.

The technique itself is quite an easy one once you get the hang of it, allowing you to form complex shapes and forms. The process which requires patience and time is a great recreational craft, suitable for young minds and adults alike, a creative method of expressing one’s personality and imagination.
