How to Make a Paper Mache Bird?

Answer

To make a paper mache bird, you will first need to make your initial bird shape. You can use an inflated balloon, or you can make one using wire or even wadded strips of dry paper. Once you have your initial base shape, begin covering with strips of the paper that have been dipped into the batter, scraping off the excess batter. Smooth with your fingers as you go, pinching out the little details like the beak and even feather ridges. When you have your completed shape, allow to dry and then you may paint with poster paint.
