Paper Maché is a fun and versatile art form. Depending on how it's made and cared for, paper maché can last for over a hundred years! My how-to videos will show you step by step how to create things like masks and headpieces. However, you can use these techniques to create just about anything your imagination can dream up. I also have related how-to videos for making Paper Maché Clay and silicone molds.
