A few months ago I came into posession of a pilates ball. After an aborted attempt with some spray foam that resulted in a lampshade (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94686.msg895360), I made a papier mache Death Star.


Here's how:

First I did about six layers of papier mache (basic flour and water recipe) to form a hemisphere.


Then I cut and inserted a large disk of styrofoam into each hemisphere.


To form the gap needed for the equatorial trench, I cut a few scraps of cardboard and spray-glued them between the hemispheres.



To make the dish, I cut a hole in the upper hemisphere...


and molded a smaller piece of papier mache on my globe.


After that it was just a matter of putting another layer of papier mache to jion the hemispheres and the dish, then a lick of paint and it was done.

Then I blew it up.

Because, I mean, what else do you do with Death Stars?

That is fantastic!  We have a mostly deflated pilates ball that the kids use as a lounge chair.  What was I thinking?  I don't want to do pilates.

That is so totally cool!  I paper mache' everything and I am a huge SW fan.  But I have never done any paper mache' Star Wars other than my Shaak Ti headpiece.  I might have to try this!

awesome.  video needs some editing though; waiting five minutes for the explosion is a bit much.
