To make paper mache' you mix water and flour to make a paste, (but not too thick) tear tiny stripes or squares of newspaper. Depending on what you want to paper mache' for this instance we will paper mache' a sphere, take a blown up balloon and cover in the paste, then stick on and cover with the newspaper.

You should develop your own technique as you go but keep the consistency together and don't have paste dripping everywhere.

It is best to do a few layers to achieve a stonger mould. Let to dry and then you have your paper mache'

Ihope I have explained thid OK!

The last way I tried didn't turn out too bad. I didn't try a recipe, I just guessed. I had some old water based wallpaper paste laying around so I figured I'd use it for something. I watered it down quite a bit. Tore strips from an old phone book (got to recycle ;) lol!), dipped the strips in the solution and layed them on my mold. People usually use 1 part flour to 2 parts water plus 3 tablespoons of salt or 1part elmers glue to 2 parts water or just some liquid starch. For paper you can use newspaper or phone book pages.

Papier-mâché is usually made my stretching strips of paper or fabric soaked in a thin glue over a structural frame. The form that I grew up with was strips of newspaper and a paste made from water, flour, and a little glue. Most recipes use Elmer's white glue and water, and nothing else, so I would recommend trying that. The mixture is two parts glue to one part water, although this depends on the thickness of the glue. Mix water into the glue until you get a consistency a bit thicker than milk. You'll want to work in layers as you spread the strips of cloth or paper over your frame, letting each layer air dry completely before applying the next one. The strips of each layer should overlap a little, and you should probably only do between two and four layers, depending on the size of your project.

"Papier-mâché" is French for "chewed-up paper."

Paper or Papier Mache is a cross between a clay like and plastic substance that can be used to create various designs. Most of these designs are used as household ornamentation. Paper Mache is very popular with kids.

The inner layers of the paper mache can be made with news papers. Since this does not have to be painted over. It is advisable to use printer paper or chart paper on the exterior because it is easy to paint over these and decorate. Mix glue and water in a ratio of 3:1. Even flour can be added to this mixture. Add some salt to this mixture. Completely soak papers in water and mix it with the glue. The amount of water used in paper mache will be determined by the general humidity levels. Stir the mixture and it will soon begin to look and feel like clay. This can now be molded into any form.

If you do not want to take too much trouble with the glue and flour then any good PVC glue from the market will do the trick.
