Paper Mache Tips and Tricks

This paper mache tips section is where we pass on all of those little tricks we've learned through trial and error or experimentation.

For example, we show you how we avoid decorating disasters after having had a few of our own. (And oh boy, some of them have been corkers.)

Want to know how to prevent your precious work of art from warping? This is the place to be.

Not only do we share our own experience here, we'd like to share yours too. If you have any hints or tips you'd like to pass on fill in the form on this page to share them on the site.

Paper mache is a very personal thing as just about anything goes. Experimenting is a great way to find new methods and techniques that work well for you.

Anything you think might help someone else to create something great is what we want to hear about. Even if it sounds obvious to you, it may be just what someone else needs to know to get past a creative block.

We're learning new things all the time and we'll certainly share any cool new stuff we learn with you on this page.

So, on to what we think are good little hints for you.

Important Notice

We really hate to have to do this but from the end of this month (April 2014) we will be taking CPM off line. Unfortunately we just don't have the time to maintain the site and work on our art right now. We will be keeping the Facebook page though so you'll still be able to share your art with us and get in touch if you'd like to.
