Pots decorated with paper mache
Papier-mâché is the way in which an ancient oriental technique was named in France, which consisted of forming a paper paste that was used in decoration. The same, today has been reduced to using fragments of old newspapers and magazines, among many other forms, which are stuck with paste or other artificial adhesives in order to decorate all kinds of things.
Today we will show you how to decorate pots with papier-mâché.
If you want to make the paste, it is made by simply mixing water with flour. It generates the same effect as vinyl glue. Then one must have the pot that one is going to use and the pieces of paper that one is going to use. A minimum of three layers of paper is recommended.
Then with a brush you must apply the paste in the pot and you will be placing pieces of paper. When you have finished the second layer, pay special attention because if the third will be the last, it must include photos or items that you want to see in the decoration.
Let it dry and finally you can give a coat of black tempera or any dark color, which helps to cover the imperfections that remain on the inside of the pot and thus it will be finished.
It must be said that the paste takes on a very ugly smell, so it is advisable to leave it drying outside and throw everything that is left over after finishing the craft.
