Project Details

These aren’t your typical paper mache creatures. Plast’r Craft® is a sturdy plaster impregnated gauze suitable for all ages.

Steps

  1. Shape it: Start by scrunching up paper and wrapping pipe cleaners around it. Bend the pipe cleaners in the shape of your creature. Remember: You can add more detail to it later. Just give it the basics like a head, body, arms, legs and a tail.

  2. Plast’r Craft® It: Follow the directions on the side of the Plast’r Craft® Box and cover your entire creature. You can continue to shape and bend him as you add the Plast’r Craft®. Give him monster-like details such as horns, spikes and claws to make him more original. Let it dry overnight.

  3. Color It: Use white glue and scraps of tissue paper to give it color. The cleanest way to do this is to use a paintbrush to apply the glue and tissue to your creature.
