Handmade Monday 21 - Papier Mache Vases

The week has just flown by again, I've no idea where the time goes. I've been doing some papier mache last week and have almost got my big vases ready for painting.





The rule is a standard 30cm (12") so you can see they are quite big.I will be making some large papier mache flowers for these as well.

I have also been working on a fairy, dragon and a couple of bowls but haven't had time to put pics up yet. 

I haven't done much with the marquetry as it really requires steady hands and mine have had the shakes all week. 




Pop over to Wendy's Blog at 1st Unique Gifts to see what everyone else has been doing for Handmade Monday.

  1. Just cannot remember the last time I worked with paper mache... I don't think I got past the money pig made from a balloon and egg box parts! Your vases look much more sophisticated.
