Default Branching out into paper mache

Scouring the interwebz for different things Halloween related and came across these Rot Jars. The tutorial link from Gourdin Fester is posted below. He is heavily influenced by Pumpkinrot and these swamp lanterns are really cool. I'm not sure about next year's theme but these were just too cool not to try. I' m up to where the paper mache goes on but I need glue so hope to start that part next week. I've watched all 5 tutorial vids a few times and I think I can pull this off. Never worked with PM before so here goes nothing!

If you're new to papier mache, check out Mr Chicken's paint mache techniques. I've used it myself and prefer it now to the more traditional techniques.

Me too! I'll be interested to see how it comes out. Plan to make a few of them for next year or whenever.

I remember seeing this. Interesting. I may give it a try as I have to paint the paper anyway. Thanks!

Made one without all the armatures sticking out, just to get the feel of it. Paper work done and ready for paint. Came out pretty good. We'll have a few of these in our witch haunt.

Really nice , i started to work on some for this year haunt with my boys. I will modify my technique right away to reflect the effect you've created with the foil paper.

Thanks a lot for sharing it with us , great inspiration
