Paper Mache Bowls



Art Start October 2016

Art Start students created paper mache bowls during the month of October. Plastic dollar store bowls served as our armatures. I coated them in petroleum jelly then a layer of plastic wrap. The students dipped newspaper strips in paper mache paste then layered them onto the armatures for two classes. We popped the paper mache bowls off of the armatures and painted them with acrylic paint. They are sturdy and beautiful, check them out!
