Paper Mache – Why Should Kids Have All the Fun?
On this site we have patterns, tutorials, videos and step-by-step instructions that help you create your own hand-crafted paper mache sculptures. Your host, Jonni Good, is an animal sculptor and the author of four popular books about sculpting.
Jonni is also the inventor of the famous paper mache clay recipe, and she brought back the idea of using patterns inside your paper mache sculptures. These two things completely change the way paper mache sculptures are made.
Now beautiful paper mache sculptures, wall art and masks can be made by artists of all ages. The materials are inexpensive and the methods are easy, but your sculptures will last a lifetime if you take care of them. Your next paper mache sculpture might even become a treasured family heirloom.
