Papier Masha from toilet paper

Papier Masha from toilet paper

One of the main advantages of work in the Papier-Masha technique are the availability and low cost of the materials used: create a product is possible from PVA and toilet paper glue. The relative simplicity of technology allows you to deal with this type of creativity, even beside the children.

What paper is used?

I must say that various paper materials are used as the basis for Papier-Masha: old newspapers, cardboard, napkins, or toilet paper. The latter option is used quite often, as always under hand. Most masters converge in the fact that the fiscal type of toilet paper is suitable for creativity, which after to be crushed into small pieces. Others, however, prefer a subtle and high-quality basis consisting of 2-3 layers. The key characteristic of this material is considered dissolution in water without seals.

By the way, it is believed that white paper is better disintegrated by fibers in a liquid, forming a pleasant color composition, while gray paper products are much stronger.


The tough mass of papier-mache from toilet paper is created in several ways.

  • For example, you can prepare a mixture based on PVA glue. Work begins with the fact that one packaging of the main material is crushed into small pieces and poured a glass of just boiling water. To speed up the process, the canvas are allowed to add in several layers. After soaking, which can last from 2 to 8 hours, the mass is warm up to homogeneity with a blender, mixer or a conventional fork. At the next stage, water will remain: for this, the mass is laid out in a gauze or a thin fabric, collapsed and pressed.

The substance is once again grinding the blender, after which it is thoroughly mixed with PVA glue or splock in the amount of approximately 2 tablespoons. This method is characterized by simplicity and low cost, which makes it suitable for beginners, but requires considerable time to insist the mass. In addition, due to the heterogeneity of the material in the finished product may be observed lumps.

It is necessary to mention that this recipe may be slightly modified. After the mixture of water and paper is imagining, it is placed on fire and hears a little. Next, the mass grinding occurs with the help of a blender, which allows you to highlight individual fibers. The finished substance is slightly dryed, being laid out on a napkin or paper, and then again goes on the stove. The contents of the saucepan will need to be brought to a boil, after which a pair of tablespoons of PVA glue is immediately added to it, and everything is thoroughly mixed before gaining a tough structure. You can use a lot after cooling.

  • Another option toilet with toilet paper implies the use of several types of glue. Approximately 3-4 rolls of cheap toilet paper are poured with plain water from under the tap. Substances will need to be soaked from 5 to 8 hours, after which it will have to be arched with hands. To remove the residues of the liquid, the mass will need to be wrapped in gauze and squeeze. At the next stage, a tablespoon of the wallpaper glue is mixed with a glass of water. The mixture is poured into the paper, after which half the glass of the glasses of PVA is added there. All components are mixed until a homogeneous pasty mass is obtained.

  • I wonder the recipe for paper clay, implying the use of starch and flour. It will take 200 grams of starch, PVA glue in an amount of 250 grams, 4 tablespoons of sunflower oil, toilet paper roll and wheat flour. The main material is crushed into pieces and soaked in water. After a couple of hours, the substance should be well squeezed.

The land will be mass, the less will the shrinkage of the finished product.

    The paper is added to the paper, oil providing material plasticity and preventing sticking to hand. Next, PVA glue is added to the mixture and the starch is falling asleep, which reduces the shrinkage. Gradually, flour interferes in the mixture, the amount of which is determined by the situation – it will depend on how well the paper is pressed, as well as the moisture and stickiness of the flour itself. The finished dough should be slightly stretching, but do not break, but also do not stick to hand and keep the form.

    • Quality composition is obtained by using gypsum replacement in the amount of 300-350 grams. In addition to it, there are 300 milliliters of PVA glue, a tablespoon of vegetable oil and the same amount of detergent, from 200 to 300 grams of starch, 100 grams of flour and a roll of white toilet paper. The number of dry components may vary depending on the resulting consistency – it should be thick and dense, but not to pester. All begins with the fact that in 250 milliliters of glue is gradually smeared toilet paper. It can not throw lumps – it is important to lower one leaf, qualitatively. Next begins the mixing of the mixture until it thickens.

      At the next stage, oil and detergent are added to the ingredients. Mixing the dough, it is necessary to fall asleep 100-150 grams of starch, and then 100 grams of flour. After making 100 grams of small plaster replacement and high-quality stirring, the composition is removed in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. At this time, you can enjoy cooking alert from 1.5 tablespoons of flour and 0.5 glasses of water. The substance must be their consistency to the corresponding pva.

      Three tablespoons of glue and flour blades are added to the cooling celastic. It is important to accurately extort the proportions, otherwise the mixture will be liquid, it will be necessary to thicken, and this will negatively affect the characteristics of the composition. Mass is grinding the immersion blender to homogeneity. Substance should be delivered from lumps and large particles. After it, it is possible to interfered from 100 to 150 grams of starch, as well as 200 grams of gypsum replacement. At the last stage, a tablespoon of PVA “Moment” adhesive is added to the mass, as part of a plasticizer. Still smelled and removes storage.

      The first 5 days the ready mass can be saved simply in the cellophane package, but for the next week, it should be removed in the refrigerator.

      Sometimes for the manufacture of the subject in the technique of Papier-Mach, sometimes it is not necessary to create a lot. In this case, the toilet paper with the hands is crushed into small pieces, and then applied to the prepared base and is labeled with glue. It is extremely important not to use scissors for this purpose, otherwise the dense borders of the fragments will be brightly highlighted in the finished product. Pieces must rebuild each other with torn edges. It is worth mentioning that adhesive substance either covers the layers, or separate fragments are immersed in it. By the way, toilet paper in such master classes is used only for the base, and the upper layer is formed from white paper.

      Production of crafts

      The mass based on toilet paper allows you to make a variety of crafts. For example, taking the master class on the manufacture of colors and replacing the main material, it will be possible to get a very beautiful interior decoration. To work, besides paper, air balloons will be required, PVA glue or bulk, bowl, in which weight will be soaked, scissors with threads, plate and adhesive gun. To create a completed composition, do not do without paints and brushes, newspapers, cardboard, template and plastic cup.

      The first thing paper bursts into small pieces, and glue divorces water. The ball must be inflated to the size of what the flower should turn out.

      Each piece of paper is dipped into glue, after which it sticks to the ball. Thus, it is necessary to create a minimum of 4 layers. Keep the ball at this time better in a plate to make liquid not dripped on the table. When the workpiece is dry, it can be needed from 2 to 4 days, it will be possible to cut it in half – so it will be two petals that will remain in the selected shade. If you wish, you can also slightly modify their shape. Similarly, several petals are created, which are then glued onto a cardboard circle with a glue gun.

      The middle is formed from a lump of a newspaper, wrapped with napkins, rewinded cross-grazing threads and a dyed gouache. Leaves are simply cut on a pattern of cardboard, which is stained in bright green color.

      Quite quickly and just make it possible to make a snowman in a papier-mache technique. This option is ideal for beginner masters. For work, a papier-mache mass is used, created from a pair of packaging of toilet paper and PVA glue, a couple of small cotton balls, PVA glue, cardboard, “skewer” wooden wand, as well as brushes and acrylic paints. Three dizard balls are formed from the paper test, which are immediately put on the skewer. Handles are either also formed from papier-mâché, either made from conventional branches. During the two days, the details are glued on the cardboard basis along with cotton balls that will perform the role of the feet of the creature.

      The basis of three balls is painted in a snow-white color, hands – in black, and “carrot” – in orange. Having turned the face of a snowman, it is necessary to fix all the remaining details on the body, that is, the nose and hands. A fabric scarf is observed on the neck of the toy, which is also fixed with glue.

      Similarly, Baba Yaga from Paper Masha is created. The work will require a mass of 2-3 rolls of toilet paper, as well as wallpaper glue, fabric fragments and threads, PVA glue, beads and wooden spanks. The base of the cylinder is formed from the paper test, on which an elongated nose is immediately formed.

      With the help of ships of papier-mash, mouth and eyes are enclosed, and hands with fingers are formed separately.

      When all the details are sacrificed, it will stay to glue them to the base, paint the crawl, make her a wig made of threads and clothes from the fabric.
