This pot is made by layering sheets of tissue paper and paper mache glue. The type of glue used here is called ‘Mix-a-Paste’, sometimes known as ‘Methyl Cellulose’. It comes in a powdered form from craft stores (eg Jacksons), but I think it is very similar to wallpaper paste. If neither of those options are available, try ordinary paper glue such as Clag or watered down PVA. Methyl Cellulose is a very ecomomical adhesive. A very small amount of powder makes alot of glue when mixed with water. Although it isn’t a strong adhesive, it is perfect for paper projects such as this one.
You will need: red & green tissue, glue, brush, scissors, green pipecleaner and 2 bowls. The bowls I have used are about 11cm in diameter and 7cm in height – but anything close to that size will be fine. Allow 2 days to make this one as the pots need to dry overnight before you can remove them from the bowls.
