Older Paper Mache Projects

My original “Paper Mache Blog” was with a different company.   I didn’t want to re-post everything I had on that blog.   So I decided to add them as pages here.   To see them, click on the pull down menu or any of these photos.   Each of these pages are kind of long.  They include all of the posts for each of these projects.    I just thought it would be simpler not to have multiple pages within each page.

    You are amazing in making dragons. I WISH YOU WERE MY TEACHER FOR ART/PAPER MACHE .

    • Thank you Sam. I can be your teacher if you just look at this blog and my books and videos. Then it is just about practice. You have to work. Not surprisingly the more you make the better you get.

    Hi I just wanted to know whether I can use toothpicks for the pointy things around the body and you no how you put those triangles on the equinox dragon can I use paper instead?

    P.S. i am talking about the equinox dragon

    Thanks sincerely

    • Hello Sam. I think it’s okay to do whatever you want. What I do is not the only way to do things. I just show people how I make things. But I certainly don’t expect everyone to do the exact same thing. Give the toothpicks a try. And experiment with scales. See if you can make the paper work. Good luck

    Those triangle clothe all around the dragon.

    love your work I’ve done a dragon trophy head and starting a full body dragon. I’ve made my own teeth but they look like poop. could you do a short video on how you are shaping them and temp and time you use to bake? thanks

    Hi. I’m in the process of making paper mache dragon horns and wanted more info. on how you do yours. How exactly do you do the cloth mache over them? Like in the Great Paper Mache Dragon Trophy you have posted on YouTube? How many sections of cloth did you use? How did you cut it so as to hide where you cut it? I don’t know if this makes sense but any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way I love your videos they’re my inspiration.

  13. Jenn says:

    Wow!! Such amazing work!!! What do you make the scales out of?

  14. Thomas says:

    Sir ,What type of glue have you used ??? I’m trying to do the sea dragon😊 half of its work has completed. It’s not perfect, but not bad. I used favicol white glue till now. For attaching the cloth .. I think using frivolous will be a worst idea. Would you please share the name of glue that you are using…please

    • Hello Bhagya. I use all purpose “white” glue with the cloth. The most common brand is called “Elmer’s”. It is also called PVA, and is used to glue wood together. Good luck!

    I’m wondering where I can find a tutorial of how you make your teeth, horns, talons, etc.? Do you use resin? Did you make a mold? How did you make that mold? I have so many questions 😂

    • Hello Amanda. If you look on any of my tutorials on this blog I show how to make those things. I use different processes for different projects. But it’s all out there.
