Craft Timber and Paper Mache FAQs

How do I make papier mache?

The first step when making your very own papier mache - creations is to cover your workspace in garbage bags, as it can be a bit messy, particularly if you are crafting with children. If you are doing papier mâ -che - with a flour paste (2 parts flour to 2 parts water and optional glue), then we recommend adding salt to preserve your projects. The easiest way to papier mâ -che - is with a glue paste, two parts white glue, such as PVA glue, to one part water. Stir the mixture fully using a disposable stick such as a lollipop stick. You may need to repeat your stirring process as the mixture can separate.

There are lots of different materials that you can use to papier mâ -che -, including paper towels, magazine paper, printer paper, or newspaper, which is the most popular option. Tear your material into strips, these do not need to be uniform and can be all shapes and sizes. Dip the strip of paper into the paste then apply to your base shape, ensuring that any bubbles are smoothed out.

We recommend that you allow each layer to dry fully before applying the next, it can take a while, but this will help to prevent mould growth and keep your project looking better for longer. If you are hoping to paint your project, acrylic paints or poster paints allow for even coverage that will maintain its vibrancy for longer. When you are finished, and your item is completely dry, paint or spray with a varnish or sealant to prevent the paper from bubbling underneath.

What glue do I need for paper mache and craft timber projects?

For these projects, you will need craft glue such as PVA glue or school glue. For other timber projects, you may opt for a hot glue gun which provides a permanent strong bond.
