DIY Paper Mache Clay:
Paper Mache is layering the paper strips dipped in glue. Paper clay is a mixture of paper pulp with a few ingredients like flour or glue. It becomes very hard on drying and is suitable for projects showing thicker details. Paper clay is made using normal waste sheets, tear them into small pieces and soak them in the water for an hour. Next blend them into pulp using a regular blender. Then bring the pulp onto the thin fabric to strain and squeeze the water out. You will get the smaller pieces of pulp. Now you can use either flour or flour and glue or a cooked mixture of flour and glue to mix it with the clay to make it super strong and hard. With this product, you can make the desired shape and decorate your house with it. Here is the detailed link for the recipe. Create and decorate!
