    To make the base use 40 sheets of newspaper and a bowl of water or water spray to mold the shape.

    Add plastic wrap to seal it and tuck the plastic wrap underneath . Then add oil clay to cover the newspaper mold and add 2nd layer of plastic wrap to cover the clay base but this time don't tick the wrap because you'll need to lift off when the paper mache is dry .

    (if you don't add wrap over the clay, the paper mold won't come off.)
