The dollar store came through again with super cheap colanders. Their built in holes are perfect for helping the mache to dry. My sample bowl here has just a couple of layers. Students will spend another two classes adding more layers so their bowls with be nice and strong.
• Paper Mache
• Masking tape, Sharpie
PREP: This is my favorite paper mache recipe. I used about 2 gallons for 24 students.
1 cups all-purpose flour
CLASS THREE: A layer of paper towels will be applied, which will help brighten to colors.
CLASS FOUR: The bowls will be painted.
CLASS FIVE: A gloss sealer will be applied, inside and out.
