Over-Sized Art Supplies via Paper Mache

Over the summer, I got some new cabinets installed in my art room and I realized that I needed something on top, for decoration. So my student teacher helped me create some fun new 3-D over-sized art supplies to go up on top.

We cut and taped cardboard boxes and scraps and then tore up newspaper strips, attaching them with a water-glue mixture to create a paper mache` covering. I added another coat of newspaper...and we started painting stay tuned for the finished product!!

A huge 'paint jar' with the brush sticking out.
Giant scissors!
Made out of cardboard...the round thing holding the blades together is a cardboard tape roll.
Giant glue bottle...made out of cardboard and a box.

I can't wait for you to see the finished product!!
