fantastic plant

Made by Amy Burgan

I created this as a sample to do with students at my art camp…I never did paper mache before I had an art studio because I always thought it was too messy to try. I used a plastic cup, straws, wire and cardstock to build my armature. Because I had already order plaster gauze, I used it to do the base layer. I used the paper mache clay recipe to make the leaves and smooth the sculpture. I also used the paper clay recipe to make the curly pieces on the end of the stem. Thanks for your awesome information!

  1. The is so much fun. Bright colors and whimsical shapes are just what the Dr. ordered. It made me smile the minute I saw it. Keep up the good work! If your students make some paper mâché, I for one would love to see them.
