Notes: Sanded or
not, papier-mâché objects my be painted with any water-based
paint. To waterproof surfaces of papier-mâché objects and
make them more durable, spray the finished object with a
clear vinyl sealer or give it at least three coats of
lacquer. To fireproof an object, stir in one teaspoon of
sodium phosphate to each cup of paste for strips or to each
cup of water when making mash.
If you decided to make
your own paper mache mash, please send me a photo, along
with your name and what state you're from! I've recently
decided to start featuring my readers' finished results.
