Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Paper mache letters
  • Black cardstock – 1 sheet
  • Paint: red, black
  • Brush – 1/2” angular
  • Spray gloss varnish
  • Photos on computer paper
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Paint the fronts of the letters red, except for the “A”, which will have photos attached to the front. Apply several coats of Red, overlapping the edges and continuing for 1/4” to 1/2” onto the sides of each letter.
  2. Paint the sides and backs of the letters black. Paint all of “A” black.
  3. Trace the “A” onto the black cardstock. Cut it out and make any adjustments necessary so that it just slightly smaller than the paper mache letter.
  4. Print photos on computer paper.
  5. Cut to fit the shape of the “A,” and glue into place on the cardstock.
  6. Glue the cardstock to the paper mache letter.
  7. Lightly mist the photo letter several times with gloss varnish, waiting between spraying for the former misting to dry completely. Continue until a solid protective layer has built up. Spray the remaining letters.
