I was wondering if anyone has ideas on how to make paper sturdier? I want to make some earrings using painted paper, and I don't want the paper to bend or be flimsy. I was thinking maybe using paper mache, but I don't know if water colour would look good on it. The idea of the earrings is to have a nice watercolour painting on them, and that's why I need to use paper... What about paper mache with plaster? Will watercolour work?
I tried using PaverPol, but it didn't harden the paper, just made it shiny and plastic-like :/
