Papier Mache Bowls

These papier mache bowls were made today using a lovely moody blue egg carton. Just one egg carton, mind you, resulted in six bowls. Since the blue is an ongoing theme these days I decided to take time out to pulp and pour and create something a little different, humble, earthy but nevertheless exotic.

If you are at all excited by this well then you can try it yourself! I have written some instructions on the PROJECTS page (top right)

Have fun!


  1. What a lovely idea, I will certainly try it.
    I have recently seen an exhibition of papier mâché jewelry in Venice, if you want to know more google Antonella Zaggia.

  2. Hi Blandina, thank you so much for your link to Antonella Zaggia. Her work is really interesting. I had some leftover pulp when making the bowls so made some small medallions which I thought would work well as a necklace, or earrings. I hope you have fun with experimenting ... let me know how it goes!
