Technique: Paper Mache
paper mache ornament
Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish
Base coat the ornament in a shade of pale pink, or whatever compliments your tissue paper. Tear the tissue paper into 1/2" squares. Brush a small amount of Liquitex onto the ornament, place on a square of tissue paper, brush over with paintbrush to smooth down. Repeat this over half the ornament, overlapping squares randomly. Allow to dry for several hours and finish the remainder of the ornament in the same manner. Once thoroughly dry give a finishing coat of Liquitex.
