Decopatch Paper Maché Lizard

Decopatch papers can be bought in many colors and designs. The green snake skin designed paper combined with a bright green paper gives this paper maché lizard a realistic look. This is a really fun project for adults and kids alike.



Decopatch Lizard 1

For this project you will need:

- paper mache lizard figure in size of choice
- decopatch paper in the colors of green snake skin and bright green
- decopatch glue
- flat soft paint brush for applying the glue
- 2 gold colored glass faceted gems to use as eyes
- jewel glue


1. Tear both colors of Decopatch paper in many different sized pieces. For the lizard, a ratio of 3/4 snake skin paper and 1/4 green paper was used.
2. For the larger areas you can use the larger pieces but it is recommended to use the smaller pieces around the tail and legs to prevent wrinkeling of the paper.
3. When the entire lizard is covered, let it thoroughly dry. Then glue on the eyes.
