    What haven’t I done with bleeding tissue paper is the real question? I teach art to adults with disabilities and we have made pigs, fish, birds, eggs, masks, jelly fish, bowls, and just “pretty paper” that we then use with relief printmaking. We are currently working on robots. Fun! Fun! How do I send pictures?

    i have done many paper -mache’ projects both with my art students in schools where I have taught and in my own art . It is a fun way to loosen up your own art adventure. While working on my graduate degree in Art I did some of my pieces in the paper mache’ method. I formed an piece with the use of an upside down five foot ladder. I covered the ladder with mached ‘ news paper , tissue papers and found objects . I placed an upside car muffler Covered with mache which I formed into the body of an unhappy teacher . I thought behind this was to speak of my belief of the Texas State System ‘s earning Latter. I felt that it was upside down and unfair to teachers ,forced to play politics of an outdated system.

      Your project sounds amazing! I was wondering what you used as the medium to stick the paper with? That’s a lot of gel medium.

    We have been having art sessions w/higher functioning Alzheimer’s patients and are always looking for simple ideas for them. I think they’ll really enjoy this. We did a similar one wrapping an oval balloon w/different threads, strings – Embroidery floss works great-fun colors for an Easter egg project. Thanks

    This is a great idea! I like the bright colors. My last paper mache project was for my new grand daughter – I made 3 hot air balloons in various sizes to hang over her crib.
