Not a Cake

This is an upside down papier-mâché bowl resting to dry on a real bowl being used as a form. It started as an empty cardboard egg carton ripped into small pieces soaked in water a few hours. Then the glop was kneaded into a more pulpy mixture with a bit of green food coloring and a few tbsp tacky glue. It may take days to dry and finally be ready for painting. We shall see!

Interesting! I will be curious to see how you finish it off. I have never made a paper mâché form.

I've always wondered what someone could do with those egg cartons. Guess the texture has intrigued me. Now i know!!!
