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.
Excelentes trabajos gran amigo Dan Reeder siga así
Hola mi amigo Carlos! Siempre es agradable escuchar de usted. Espero que usted está haciendo un montón de arte.
Muito com seu trabalho muito bom mesmo.
Queri pedir uma ajuda pois não sei o nome do pano que o Senhor utiliza para fazer suas obras, então se possível poderia me falar.
Olá Jorge. Eu uso lençóis velhos. Nada de especial.
Muito interessante , eu amei … quero muito aprender … será que teria como me ajudar a construir um também?
Eu acho que se você olhar para os projetos que estão sendo construídas você vai ver como tudo funciona. Eu também tenho livros explicando tudo isso se você estiver interessado. http://gourmetpapermache.com/about-my-books/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D90r9LY10SE Can you do step by step how to do this dragon please. I’m stuck how to make the neck that is shaped as a L its takes for every to do.
Once you learn the techniques, you can watch the time lapse videos and the become instructional. Look at these projects being made and you can figure it out.
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 ask what were those things on the dragon. The link I sent you as.
and where do you get the teeth from
I make them out of Fimo or Sculpy.
How to make the paste
for the paper mache.
I just use flour and water in roughly equal parts. That’s it. Good luck!
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
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.
I mean cloth
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
Hello Dave. There just isn’t enough to tell for making a video. It’s just clay rolled between my fingers. You’ll get the hang of it. If you look at the pan half way down this blog post you’ll see the basic shape. https://papermacheblog.com/older-paper-mache-projects/paper-mache-sea-dragon/ I bake at around 300 degrees for 40 minutes or so. I’m not careful about time though. I don’t cook either. Good luck.
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.
Hi Krystal. I used the same technique on the horns of my green man mask. You can read about it in the middle of this page, https://papermacheblog.com/older-paper-mache-projects/paper-mache-green-man-mask/. I used one sheet of cloth. I tore the edges so that they laid more flat. If you play a bit you’ll see how it works.
Wow!! Such amazing work!!! What do you make the scales out of?
Thank you Jean. Most of the time I dip square pieces of cloth into white glue and fold them into triangles for scales.
Felicidades por su gran trabajo y gracias por enseñar todo lo que sabe sobreeste tema
¡De nada! ¡Gracias por sus amables palabras Thomas!
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.
