Make permanent decorative pieces with homemade papermache paste.Can be used to make paste.Is the secret to creating a sphere, keep in mind that you need to pop up the sphere once the item is nearing completion.Using paper mache is very confusing, so it\'s better to have all the supplies you need on hand before dealing with the wet part of the project.Cover the engineering area with plastic tablecloth.Tear the newspaper into strips about 1/2 to 1 inch thick and several inches long;Longer and wider pieces work for a large paper ball, while small pieces are easier to handle for a small ball.Spam and old phone books are also OK.There is a lot of extra paper on hand, because it takes several layers of paper to make a hard paper.Inflate a round balloon and tie it when it looks as close to the perfect sphere as possible.For a larger sphere, you can replace the balloon with a cheap beach ball.Keep a firm needle on your hand for popping up balloons or beach balls after the paper is dry.Set up a disposable tray to make paper paste and keep plenty of paper towels and a bowl of water nearby to clean your hands or rubber gloves as needed.Making paper paste is a priority when it comes to materials.By placing equal school glue and water in a disposable pan, making the simplest version is easy enough even for young children.Stir the mixture with a plastic spoon to make it evenly mixed.Another version uses white flour and water.Pour a pile of white flour into the pan, then add enough water to stir it to a slightly thinner consistency than the pancake batter.Stir fully so that the mixture does not contain hard lumps;If you wish, use a manual mixer and mix the paste in a bowl that can withstand this process.The ratio of water to flour is a matter of preference ---The more flour, the stronger the dry paper paste;The thinner the mixture, the easier it will be to use.Place a balloon or beach ball on an object, such as a shallow bowl or a roll of tape, to prevent it from shaking while working.Dip a piece of paper into the paste mixture and slide between your fingers to remove the excess paste.Smooth the straps down along the top of the ball and remove bubbles and ripples by putting your hands on paper.Use the second one, also dip in the paste, and cross the first one at a certain angle.Continue to wallpaper the ball or balloon with overlapping, cross-pasted paper to smooth your hand as needed to remove ripples and excess paste.Once the top of the ball or balloon is covered, rotate it so you can work in the bottom area.If using balloons, please paste around the knot and leave a small entrance area if using beach balls.Apply a bar worth three or four layers, and then let the item dry for a few days before using a needle to pop up a balloon or ball.Remove the pop-up items from the structure and cover the paper on the hole with fresh paper paste.If needed, add a few more layers of paper to the whole project and let it dry for a few days.Once the paper is completely dry, it can draw.Craft acrylic paint, kids paint, and even spray paint can be used to color the sphere.If you are painting, put the project outdoors or paint in the wellA ventilated area away from other objects.Place the item on a newspaper or tarp and spray it with a jar from 12 to 18 inch.No matter what type of paint you use, place the sphere on a bowl or roll of tape to help avoid rolling paper when you paint.Paint in a thin layer;Too much moisture may be soaked and softened through the paste.Allow each color or paint layer to be completely dry before adding more paint.
