Paper Casting


Can you believe it is already two weeks into November?! I can't, where did this year go! Christmas will be here far too soon for me because I am the QUEEN of procrastination LOL

 Weeks ago I made some soap and needed cigar bands to put around them and then thought how nice they would look with something on them. So, I grabbed my paper pulp (I always have some made up) got one of my soap molds, just one of the guest size ones and put paper pulp into them, let them dry and just like that I had a pretty paper shell to put on my soaps.

Here is what you will need to make paper pulp:

Blender
Junk mail or any paper that you are going to throw out
water

If you want to make something from molds, Arnold Grummer paper products has a lot of very nice ones you can get here.

If you are looking to make your own special paper, check out Arnold Grummer's videos on Youtube and you can purchase the handmolds that look like this. Hint, once you start, you will want them all!

It is soooo much fun to make paper and you can find all kinds of different things to do with paper pulp. Use your imagination and see what you can come up with.
