Decopatch Papermache Bowl

It is so easy to take a simple paper mache form and alter it into a colorful piece of art. Decopatch paper combined with decopatch glue is so easy to use, the paper does not tear when wet and the glue does not soak through the paper. This craft project is fun in the summer because it requires a minimal amount of materials and you can do it while sitting out on the porch or balcony.



Decopatch Papermache Plate

For this project you will need:

- decopatch tissue paper in color of choice
- decopatch glue
- paper mache bowl or plate
- white acrylic paint
- paint brush


1. Paint the paper mache form white and let it dry before continuing.
2. Cut the decopatch tissue paper in small 2 inch squares or triangles. The paper does not have to be perfectly cut out. The more irregular, the more interesting.
3. Apply a coat of decopatch glue to a small section of the bowl and press the first piece of paper onto the glue. Smoothen the paper with your brush and completely cover the paper with a coat of decopatch glue. Add more glue to the bowl next to the first piece you just added and overlap this first piece slightly with a second piece. Apply glue to cover the second piece. Add the next piece in the same manner and continue until the entire bowl is covered.
