    I am going to make a didge, it looks like a good item for my first paper clay project. I am going to make one of the pipes into a ‘rain stick’ instead of a didge. Here is a link for instructions on how to make a rain stick, which is a ceremonial musical instrument from Chile. It’s a fun project for kids!

    Pretty nifty idea, using paper mache. I just straight up painted my didge (after some sandind to the pvc) with acrylic paint. I have found out though if you mix white school glue with some water for paper mache it gives it a better grip on the original surface. Overall great article! Thanks a ton for resources loke this!!!

    Hey, I just commented on your paper mache flying pig and then I saw this. Can you tell me, how did the didgeridoo sound after you made it? Does it sound like a didgeridoo? If so, I have a project!

    Hi… very cool site with lots of great tips. I have a question that I have not been able to answer… I thought with your expertise you might be able to help. My partner and I recently used rigid wrap to create a mold of my very pregnant belly. I would like to create a smooth finish and was considering paper mache since it is much lighter than adding more layers of plaster. My question: can I use paper mache over the plaster to create the smooth finish I’m looking for?

    Thanks!
