Making a paper mache bowl.....the beginning and the end....

My Paper Mache Bowl.......
View from the back.
A side view...
The bowl before it's done...
I bought this book from Amazon.com......immediately I got started making a paper bowl....
We began by going to all the recycling bins form the building and collected newspapers.

Here is Nora tearing the paper into little pieces.


She is placing them in a blender full of water.
we then drained the excess water in the strainer.

Here is the picture of the pulp.
Here is the bowl we will use as a mold.....and some vaseline to coat the sides so our dried paper bowl detaches easily in a few days when it's dry.

Last, I used my hands to spread the pulp all over the bowl covered in vaseline.
