In progress paper mache - butterflies
1. Marissa and I worked on this monarch butterfly and we each did a wing separately and connected them to the body together.
2. First we had to create the shape to lay the paper mache onto. We used cardboard for the wings and paper for the body. After that we covered them with paper. To make the paper mache paste we mixed flour and water, ripped pieces of newspaper, dipped them into the paste and applied it on the mold. After the wings and body were dried we hot glued them together and applied a layer of paper towels to ensure they wereconnected.
3.One difficulty was connecting the wings and making sure they stayed on. Also it is difficult making sure the paper towels stayed smooth. A success is the shape of the body and the wings and the proportions.
