How to not make a paper mache bowl

After watching District 9 twice (because its so good) I found my favorite part was when Wikus’ wife shows the camera a paper mache bowl that he had made her.  It is crudely made and crudely painted, plus she sat on it by accident.  I have to say–awesome.  So I am making one for Rachel.  The recipe called for a layer of paper bag, three layers of newspaper, then another layer of paper bag.  Not sure how much flour to use though, it seems either too thin or too pasty.

We’ll see.

I’ll be painting it later this week.PaperMache03PaperMache04
