So... I think these would go here!

My husband commented the other day that we are building a collection of wigs and it's probably not best for them  just lay in piles but where would be get wig stands? Hee hee hee... silly man. I took the initiative and made some! I covered some balloons in paper mache (like I was making pinatas) and then put them on cups and covered those as well. It was tricky getting the cups out but I did it, mostly. (OK, the one glass cup I used is still in there but the other 3 were plastic so with a little convincing from a knife they cooperated.) I made 4 because we had 4 wigs, but when it came time to wig them, I couldn't find my Betty Page wig! Sadface!


All of them together.


This wig was used in my scandalous pregnant pictures from last year


This one was for my Betty wig, but since I couldn't find it I put my husband's dreads on it, which he cut off about 6 months before w got married and I strung on a ribbon for him. I think he is happy to have these on display, and maybe a little sad too. He cried when we cut them off!


Princess Peach wig from this year's Halloween.



Hook wig from last year's Halloween.

there's no need for glue! just flour and water will do (and a little salt)... and your project will smell like pancakes Wink

but... the glue is the best part! And the glue I use is super diluted so it's more like water, really.

You just did the same thing? Here I thought I was being original...

Flour and water and a little salt...?? i have no clue how that works, All this time i thought paper mache are made of lots of glue and water like Disney Art Attack often do. But this is way more interesting!! Is there any tutorials on the flour and water to create paper mache?

And yes i do agree, glue makes it look shiny like my mom always say Tongue but err... sticky sticky... the last time i played with glue ended up getting all the area and stuff around me with dried gummy texture in grey around the project... real messy looking.

ive never known any other method--you just mix together flour and water until it's a consistency you like.  add a pinch of salt.  really, it's like pancake batter.  i'm sure if you googled it, you'd find a bunch of info.

actually, the thick stuff I've found to be too heavy to stay on the form. I'm sure if you google it you can find something.
