MAKING PAPER MACHE’ LARGE ANIMAL HEADS

"The first step in the making of large paper mache' animal heads is the shaping & construction of wire & cardboard into an armature." Lyle Suter

 

"Cardboard from a grocery box is cut with a mat knife and shaped into a circular supportive neck."

 

"Students work in teams on the larger heads and enthusiasm begins to grow." 

 

 

"Crumpled newspaper is added and held in place with masking tape."

 

 

 

 

 

"The next step is the mixing of wheat paste with warm water to a slightly thick cream of wheat consistency."

 

"Lumps are dissolved by mashing them against the sides of the pail or between ones hands, Yuk!"

 

"Paper towels are then dipped in the wheat paste solution, wrung out and applied to the paper sculptural animal head."

 

 

 

 

 

"Students use scrap wood, cardboard and wire left over from construction of a classroom addition for assembling frame, fill in body with newspaper - crumpled or layered - and then finish up with paints and colored tissue paper."
