Overview

Creating decorative or functional objects d'art by recycling paper in the form of papier mache is an art that everyone can afford to enjoy. Ecological concerns and the work of young designers have led to a revival of popular interest in this traditional craft.
This book contains step-by-step ideas for making 100 objects in papier mache which should appeal to beginners and more experienced craftpeople alike. The projects included range from jewellery, bowls, vases and mirrors to Christmas tree decorations, shelves, toys, dolls, a toy theatre and a chess set. Clear explanations are given on how to mould paper strips or cast pulp using frameworks such as balloons, modelling plastic, mixing bowls or chicken wire. There are many illustrations of both the newest and the more traditional techniques for designing, painting and vanishing work.
