My second paper mache project (first one was a pinata built on top of a balloon i did a few years ago) it is not perfect but i had a lot of fun so i think it was worth it! Now i have some questions for some of you that have more experience with this medium. The paper i am using is pretty thick (book paper) and this makes the surface pretty uneven but i don’t want to change it. Would making the first layers using the thick paper and the last layers using something soft like toilet paper make it smoother? How to avoid bits of dough sticking to the paper? I thought i was just mixing the paper mache badly but i started using a mixer and i see improvement but there is still a little of them left. And last question, what are your tips on making bases for masks without using clay? I don’t think this hobby will last very long so i don’t want to spend too much money on it but i would like to make a mask. Would salt clay work? Thanks to all of you in advance.
