Paper Mache Models!

Hi artybaker here 🙂 . Since 2010 I have been making paper mache models as Christmas presents for our extended family. Then, in 2012 I started making special edition models for birthday presents. Here are some photos of the Christmas models:

The penguins were Christmas presents for 2011.

The reindeers and santas were both Christmas presents for 2012.

This is what the models look like when they are not decorated:P1050555

Here are some photos of the female Middlesbrough football player special edition model I made for sophofbread and the manatee (a seal-like sea creature) special edition model I made for mumlovesearlgrey…

The models are all handmade by me. They are made of newspaper and water (I used to use PVA glue mixed with the water but then I realised that I could make them by shredding the newspaper and soaking it in the water to save the glue), then I use tissue paper and paint to colour them. The eyes are  always googly eyes and some of the models have arms but some don’t; the snowmens’ arms are made of twigs as are the reindeers’ antlers. To name a few I have made; two football players, a rugby player, a sheep, a dog, an owl, a sailor, Tin Tin (a comic book character), two cats, a guinea pig and Winnie the Pooh.

Thank you for reading!
