  • Step 1

    Directions:

    mix water and flour evenly

    inflated the baloon

    draw a mark on the baloon what high you want you bowl to be

    strip layers of newspaper about 2 inches or smaler long

    dip the strips into the mixture and place on balloon till baloon is covered with its first layer

    let dry for an hour or two

    create another later and leve to dry

    create the base with a small styrofoam bowl by taping the bowl face up on the oposit end of the opening of the balloon making shure that it sets flat befor you tape it down

    Repeat layering the baloon with newspsper until the mould is covered with paper to about the depth of 1 - 2 cm

    when you have finished layring the balloon you pop the baloon inside and let the balloon unstick from the inside of the papermache bowl

    gently pull out the baloon

    hear comes the creative part; paint the bowl with a base coat, this may take 2 laters. then let fully dry before you add enny detailed work or other color

    and your finished :D
