Thank you all for the positive feedback Smiley
My mum was really happy with it. I'll upload my next sculpture soon. I hope to see some of your results too Smiley

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.

Thanks! Cheesy
They look good because this is a really forgiving way of sculpting Roll Eyes, the shapes smoothen out when you cover them in paper.
I really like how the crystal ball holder came out too. I'm having a hard time deciding which colours to use.

I'm now working on a tutorial of the process (it's not really complicated but a few tips are always useful) making a flower, it's coming together nicely.

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 ^^

I used inner tube a lot to make juggling gear, but i never thought you could make an armour out of it Cheesy

Module origami is amazing, it takes so serious math to invent them.

A good one to make is firework origami, look it up on youtube Wink
