Wall paper paste
These are so easy to do. Thanks doodling in my mind for this great idea (Paper Mache pumpkins)
First of all blow up a balloon. (Doesn't need to be orange as you won't see it in the end) And then tie string around it to get a pumpkin shape.
Then we cut up some old newspapers into small pieces. Doesn't matter how even they are. To keep things a little less messy we decided to put the paste on using a paint brush rather than dipping the paper in the paste.
Luckily it was a nice warm sunny day so after a couple of layers of paper we put it outside in the sun to dry. I decided this would be quicker than putting on lots of layers and then drying the whole thing. Once this was dry more layers were added with a final layer of old white paper or tissue paper to make painting easier.
Then the paints came out.
