Paper mache pottery -finishing touches


The pottery students recently painted their projects.

This was the last session, and there was much to be accomplished!

Finding a color, design or pattern to add to their creation was the priority for this last session.

That did not mean that fun was not a part of the session.

Focus and concentration on creating the desired look of the pottery required many creative skills.

This project required the ability to visualize the end result.

It also required some hard work.

The students put a lot time and attention in their final push to complete their paper mache pottery.

Then it required some much needed drying time.

But with all good things waiting is required…for drying.

The students have much to be proud of as they have a great memory and a wonderful piece of pottery that represents their vision and exploration into 3D building techniques.

Maybe you now will be inspired to create a piece of paper mache pottery or sign up for a future class at the Art Junction!
