How Do You Make A Paper Mache Ball?



How to Paint Papier Mâché

Steps

  1. Apply white Gesso all over your creation, making sure you paint Gesso into any corners and creases You may require several layers to ensure a smooth base all over, so let it dry completely between applications.
  2. Once dry and smooth, begin to paint the colours.Begin with the larger areas first, and work smaller towards the details.
  3. Use acrylic paint.It is the most popular paint for this, because it dries nice and bright, and it is also waterproof. Water colours are not waterproof, and dry in a dull soft way. You can also use household paint if your creation is quite large. Again, allow paint to dry between applications.
  4. Once everything is painted, apply the details.These can be done using waterproof marker pens, wool for the hair (or fur!) and clothes. Beads, string and other household items can be added if applicable.
  5. Finished.

Warnings

  • If using alkyd-based household paint, you will need turpentine or mineral spirits to clean your brushes. This is toxic and should not be used without adult supervision. Also use a mask to prevent fumes being inhaled. Water can be used to clean latex paint.
  • This is messy! Have plenty of newspaper covering your workspace.
