All About

Papier-Mache

Papier-mache is an uncomplicated crafting technique that turns old newspaper into art. All you need are strips of newspaper, a glue solution, some cardboard or chicken wire, and paint. With a bit of imagination, animals, cars, and hot-air balloons come to life in papier-mache form.

These crafts are for kids who love to make things move -- miniature cars and buses, trains and planes, rocket ships and UFOs. In an afternoon, you can turn cereal boxes, paper plates, and cardboard tubes into vehicles of all sorts. And you don’t need any high-tech materials -- just flour, strips of newspaper, glue, and paint.
