1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / [tutorial link] Papier Mach Sculpting (pic heavy) on: October 30, 2011 04:35:53 AM


Hey folks! Today i'll be teaching you how i make my Papier Mach sculptures, even though technically they're not entirely papier mach it's the closest name i could find. The process is rather simple, it's really forgiving and you get 3 chances to correct any mistakes during the process and the materials are easy to handle.

I moved this tutorial to my website because it can enjoy a better layout there, my goal is by no mean to advertise my website by doing this. I made this tutorial a while ago and my website was down at the time, now that it's back up, you can read it there.

There are also other tutorials on spray paint art for those interested.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Papier Mach (sort of) on: October 26, 2011 12:12:45 PM


Hello everyone, first post here Smiley

Here's a few papier mach sculptures i've been doing in the last few days. When i start making the next ones i'll make a tutorial of the process.

The idea's pretty simple. I make shape out of tinfoil, sometimes helped by a wire skeleton, and cover it in stripes of newspaper soaked in wallpaper glue (can't figure out the english name). Once dry i apply a quick layer of white acrylic and then paint it with an airbrush.

Here's the non painted version:


Here's an alien i made after that, still needs painting:


Then i made a hand but did a poor job painting it:


Here's a bigger one, a crystal ball holder, this one i will put special care in painting it (for the juggling nerds like me it's a 95mm acrylic from Home of Poi):




In the tutorial i plan on covering the basic idea and techniques.
If some are interested i can also cover wire skeleton basics and painting with an airbrush, i'd do it only it's asked though, it would take a good amount of time ^^
