How To Make Papier Mache by Debbie Hainline

Dryer Lint Paper Mache

This inexpensive recipe is easy to make and works in those plastic candy molds very well. Just allow enough time for drying.

1 cup of lint from the dryer
1 cup torn up tissue paper (want colored use colored tissue paper)
2 tsp. liquid starch
2 cups waterCheeseclothMold


Mix lint, tissue paper, liquid starch and water altogether and blend until smooth in the blender.

Pour into cheesecloth draped over a bowl and press out as much of the liquid as possible.

Add to mold and press tightly.

Let air dry.

Remove from mold carefully and sand lightly.

Now you can paint these up anyway you like ......they make wonderful Christmas ornaments sprinkled with mica flakes or glass glitter.
