There are many ways to do art. One way is paper mache. Paper mache is when you make a special project with strips of newspaper and a special kind of paste. These are the things you need to make paper mache:
*paper mache paste (you need 3/4 white glue and 1/4 water to make paste)
First, you rip up strips of newspaper. You should rip it up and not cut it because if you rip it up it will lay smoother. Then, to make the paste mix 3/4 white glue to 1/4 water. Next, you can pick a base like a balloon,cardboard,and ect. You can mostly use anything laying around your house for a base. Next,you need to dip your strips of newspaper in your paste and stick them on your base. You should at least have four layers of the newspaper on your base and you should over-lap the pieces of newspaper. Let each layer dry before adding another one. Make sure the last layer will dry completely. After your last layer is dry then...VIOLA! You have made paper mache. If you want to paint your paper mache then you should make your last layer with white computer paper or a paper towel so that painting is easier.
