Celluclay® Bright White Instant
- Paper Mache
Mega 3D™ Washable Paint Pens
acrylic paint - purple
length of ¾” wood dowel
- 6 large
assorted color flat back rhinestones (more if desired)
60-70 colorful 5 or 6mm plastic beads
- Small clear
plastic soda or juice bottle (about 12 ounce size)
- Large gallon
size zip closure plastic bag (to mix paper mache in)
- Sponge brush
- Take off the label
from the plastic bottle. Pour the beads into the bottle.
Wrap enough tape around one end of the dowel so it will
fit tightly into the opening of the bottle.
- Mix the paper mache
inside of the plastic bag following the instructions on
the package. This will keep the paper mache neatly stored
for you to use.
- Take a small handful
of paper mach and place it on top of the bottle. Press it
down the sides evenly, like a cap, leaving the middle of
the bottle open. Press more paper mache around the area
where the dowel meets the bottle, going all the way around
and working up towards the middle of the bottle.
- Make 6 balls of paper
mache that are larger than your rhinestones. Press 3 of
them evenly spaced round the top edge and 3 spaced around
the bottom edge. Make sure half of the circle from the pressed
ball hangs over into the clear center of the bottle. Press
a rhinestone into each circle enough so the paper mache
comes up around the rhinestone to hold it in place. Add
more balls or circles of paper mache around your maraca
as desired. Allow to dry completely.
- With sponge brush
and purple paint, paint over the paper mache. Allow to dry.
- Use the Mega 3D™
Paints to add dots, swirls, lines and more to your maraca.
Allow to dry and shake away!
