Papier MâchéUnknown - 1999
You never knew papier mache could be like this! Here are big, dramatic bangles, beads, and brooches that glisten with glass gems; a magnificent vase with elaborate and wildly creative paintings; and a fantastic mobile with a fish, sun, heart, dog, and down hanging from thin ribbons. Mold a mirror frame around a tray, add a pattern that suggests the sun's rays, and rim it with shiny gold foil. Top a bright-hued box with an amusing bird handle, and add three-dimensional, painted ornamentation. Fashion a magical, whimsical cat mask influenced by traditional Balinese design. Plus, craft an articulated doll similar to ones made in Mexico; pretty doll's house furniture; a flower in a pot; and a "painted lady" statue. Want more? Check out the gallery, and you'll soon have ideas of your own to try out!
