    How to prepare this

    1. Gather stuff to use as a form or skeleton. Crumbled up news papers, junk, wood, plastic parts, baloons can be used.
    2. Create the paper mache paste or buy some ready for use. To create the paste you may use wallpaper paste, starch or glue.
    3. Find out what you want to sculpture. To create a human sculpture you may layer body part agter body part. When it has stiffened you may use a scissor to remove the paper from the body. Use more paper mache or tape to create the sculpture.

    How to do this

    1. Create strips from news papers. Create both wide and thin. Use the thin ones for detailed and curved areas.
    2. Create the skeleton and make paddings so you need less paperstrips.
    3. Begin adding layers of paper by first dipping it in the paper meshe.
    4. Finish the job by painting the model.
