Default Building with Sticky Paper

If you haven't watched the how-to videos from Stiltbeast Studios--you should. I was just reviewing this one:


The technique for making "sticky paper" looked pretty cool, but I lack that mondo huge air gun that he uses. So I experimented, and yes, it also works with a can of spray adhesive (would be more expensive if you used it a lot--but then you might go get the spray gun)

And for anyone participating in a certain challenge for making a prop under $20, you can also make the sticky paper with newspaper.

LOL@ the outtakes at the end of the video

I'd never heard of this technique, and it's pretty impressive in terms of the speed at which you can put together a fairly durable body form.

Thanks for posting that video Headless, I'm such a fan of Allen's. I had never heard of sticky paper, but I am definitely going to try it. The possibilities are endless....love the scarecrow idea.

I've been using a smaller version of it for my under $20 prop--newspaper sprayed with canned spray adhesive. It works really well (I'm a sucker for instant gratification.

Is it super expensive with the spray can adhesive? I thought about that, because it seems like a really lightweight way to make paper Mache props.....I've used the spray adhesive, like the Elmer's and that stuff gets all over the surrounding area...I liken it to overspray in painting a car....except it's sticky as all get out.

Newspaper doesn't take much adhesive (but it's not as strong and sturdy as the kraft paper). I'd prefer to do the spraying outside but it's been too stormy recently, so I lay out a plastic tablecloth and try to spray fairly closely.
