How do you make a paper mache cast?


To make a paper mache cast, you will need to first make the batter. Add some flour to a bowl, a few cups, and add enough water to make a pancake batter-like consistency. Cut a lot of strips from some newspaper. Wrap some plastic wrap around whatever you are wanting to make a cast of. Now, dip the strips of newspaper , one at a time, into the batter, wiping off the excess, and start wrapping around the casting area. Once you have covered the area completely with a couple of layers, allow to dry ( a hair dryer may speed it up). After dried, cut down one side of the cast to remove from casted area. Now that it is removed from the area, you can add more layers of the paper mache, making as thick as you would like. The thicker you make it, the longer it will take to dry.
