Papier Mache Rainbow Bowl
First we lined a pudding bowl with clingfilm
Then we painted on layers of PVA glue and torn pieces of newspaper. We painted on about 6 layers in total.
On the last layer I tucked in all the edges to leave a neat finish. However, the edges could be left raw and whimsical if desired :)
After a final coat of PVA we left the bowl to dry for a day or two.
Before painting it happy with a rainbow of colours. We used simple child's poster paints.
You could add another layer of PVA to seal and "varnish" if you want but I quite liked the matt finish.
A special place for your child to put their little treasures :)
