Learn to make a paper mache paste using which you can make any 2D or 3D shapes that you desire. We have used this to make name boards, tribal face masks, an idol of loard Ganesha. Try it out. It is fun.

1. Materials required : News Paper, Maida (Flour) , Salt

2. Cut the paper into bits and pieces

3. Soak the paper overnight in water until it is soggy. To speed up the process, you can boil the water.

4. Allow the soggy paper to dry, and then grind them in the mixer

5. Add Maida and little bit of salt to the ground pieces of paper

6. Knead the ground paper and the maida mix. As you knead, you will see the mix slowly turning into a dough (Chapathi) like consistency.

7. Add more maida and salt (for perservation) as desired.

8. Keep kneading until you get the dough consistency. The mix will turn into a clay like texture which you can use to make any shape.

9. Make the shape and allow it to dry for more than 24 hours. Once dried, you can paint your paper mache product to give it the desired look. The shape that you form becomes rock solid after drying that you can even drill into it.

Hope you liked it.
