SCULPTING WITH PAPIER MACHÊ

I began sculpting with Papier Machê for 2 years.I am interested in using recycled materials, mixed with compatible materials that would give the sculpture flexibility,strenght and durability.I developed a formula where I don´t use flour.
All the materials mixed are water and acrilic based,for compability.The sculptures are solid.I never liked the fragile sensation most paper mache tecniques passed.Indeed,there has to be some patience in the drying process.Some months,from 3 to 8 months,depending on the sculpture.I think the results pay off!!
