These feel a bit out of place among the journals and scrap books, but they *are* paper...  papier mache bowls.

The first two are from a collection I made a few years ago, when I was hand-building every single thing from scratch, using ONLY paper.  They were originally a yellow and red speckled design which never totally worked and I'm now thoroughly sick of, so I re-covered them using some cheap tissue paper I wanted to get rid off because it bleeds badly and generally is obnoxious to work with.



Purple bowl... My favourite.



Orange and blue bowl.  The colours went together better when the paper was wet!  I suppose I could use it as a gift basket for a present for someone I don't particularly like...



This one's a cheat - it's just a few layers of papier mache and a top coat of tissue over an old cracked melamine bowl I picked up for ten cents from an op shop.  These days I do most of my mache over some sort of form - tins, cut-down juice bottles, bowls, whatever - and what I've lost in hardcore papier mache extremism, I've made up in greatly increased productivity, because it saves so much time!

All of them are very fabulous!
You have a great color sense too.

I wouldn't worry about losing your extremism--the last one is still very crafty!  Smiley

A person would never think paper mache could be this beautiful. Lovely work.

They're all very pretty but the last one is my favorite because of its shape - you're not cheating, you're being resourceful! Do you seal with varnish?
