5 рецептов массы папье-маше. Отвечаю на ваши вопросы.

Hello dear friends! My name is Yevgeniya Vashchenko, welcome to our channel “Family handmade”! First of all i want
wish you all a Happy New Year and wish you the most important: happiness, health and love, because if these three components are in your life, then everything else that you yourself want will come true. Well, now on to the topic
of this video: papier-mâché. On my channel there is already one recipe for mass and very many people have become interested in it. So I decided to share with you a few more options for the masses of papier-mâché, and answer your questions, which, by the way, have accumulated a lot. Well, let’s get started? Let’s start with the recipe, which
already on my channel. Pour 250 grams of PVA glue into the container, in which we will knead the mass. PVA is more convenient to use universal, since it is not as liquid as clerical, and not as thick as carpentry, but in general, the mass will turn out on absolutely any kind of PVA, just a little paper will leave a little more or less. Now we interfere with the glue 40 grams of toilet paper – this is approximately 115 rectangles of two-layer paper. PVA can be replaced with a paste, if for some reason you need it, but most likely you will need a little more paper. The paper needs to be divided into layers, that is, of 115 double-layer rectangles you have
get 230 single-layer. We knead the paper gradually, one rectangle at a time, stirring it well in PVA. How to understand by the consistency of the mass that there is enough paper, because PVA is different in density? When the mass becomes dense enough and keeps its shape well, and the paper interferes worse and worse, this can be stopped. There is no specific number of rectangles, you can interfere with 230 single-layer pieces, you can 250 or 200, believe me, when you knead the mass you will feel that there is enough paper, just trust your feelings. Now add 1 tablespoon of liquid soap or any dishwashing liquid to the mass, I have it Fairy and knead the mass properly. Why is this done? Firstly, the mass becomes more plastic and pleasant to the touch, and secondly, for the sake of perfume, the mass has the smell of the product that you added. Next, add 1 tablespoon of glycerin or any cosmetic oil. If possible, it is best not to add vegetable oil, as it may go rancid and give an appropriate smell to your product. This additive also increases the ductility of the mass. Now add to the mass
100 grams of flour and 50 grams of starch. Any starch can be used: corn and potato, and the flour is strictly wheat. And properly knead the mass. Many people asked if it was possible to make mass without flour or starch. The answer is yes, and 2 recipes in this video will be just that. But you will not get a mass from which you can sculpt as you would from a mass according to this recipe. In the comments, I often read that the mass turned out to be too liquid, then too thick, for some it sticks to your hands, for someone it does not stick at all … Friends, it’s impossible to spoil the mass of papier-mâché, if you have a liquid mixture, add starch, if thick, add PVA and do not forget to knead it properly. For me it’s the ideal mass, it’s quite easy to work with, you can sculpt anything from it: figurines, piggy banks, paintings and panels, vases and much more, to work out both large and small parts, it can be filled with molds, products from such a mass do not need to be sanded if you smooth the surface well when sculpting. And the fact that when mixing the mass does not need to use a blender, in my opinion is also a big plus. Of the minuses, I can name only two: due to the addition of flour and starch, the products turn out to be more fragile compared to products
from other masses of papier-mâché, that is, if you drop an craft from this mass, it is likely that some small parts may break off from it, or the craft hollow inside may crack or break. The second minus is not a very long storage of the mass, after a week the mass becomes less plastic and it will not be as pleasant to work with it as in the first days. I used to add lemon juice instead of a preservative for storage, but in general, since it is advisable to use the mass in the first 5 days, Lemon juice can not be added, since during this period the mass will not have time to deteriorate, that is, become moldy. The second papier-mâché recipe is especially for those who do not want to add flour to the mass. In general, the proportions and stages of work are very similar. For 120 grams of PVA glue we take 25 grams of toilet paper or, as in my case, napkins, and mix everything properly. As you can see, toilet paper can be completely replaced with napkins or paper towels, however, it is also desirable to separate them into layers so that they dissolve better. Many asked why I knead the mass manually. It’s more convenient for me to immediately knead the mass with my hands to feel that the paper has dissolved and no lumps have formed. But even if you start kneading the mass with a mixer, then when it thickens, you still have to continue to work with your hands, otherwise you just can not mix the right amount of paper. Add to the mass 1 tablespoon of liquid soap or dishwashing detergent and 1 tablespoon of glycerin or any cosmetic
oils and knead well. These 2 components do not play a major role in any of the 5 recipes, so you can not use them, but still their presence adds plasticity and a pleasant aroma to all of the listed masses. Now add about 10 grams of starch to the mass and knead the mass properly until smooth. What is starch for? Starch helps to remove excess liquid from the mass and get the desired consistency of papier-mâché. Advantages of this papier-mâché recipe: it can be sculpted from the mass, although not as convenient and easy as the first recipe; the final products are quite durable. There will be a bit more minuses: no matter how you level the surface, in the end it will still be bumpy; when sculpting, the mass is very frizzy and sticks to the hands, and it is impossible to fashion any small details from this mass. Conclusion: this recipe has the right to life only if for some reason you do not want to add flour to the mass. In other cases, he, naturally, is inferior to the first recipe in all respects. All masses of papier-mâché should be stored in the refrigerator in a hermetically sealed container or wrapped in a plastic bag. We pass to the third recipe. This papier-mâché is not for sculpting, but for creating crafts by spreading a mass of base. Everything is very simple here: knead 40 grams of toilet paper in 250 grams of PVA glue, add 1 tablespoon of detergent and glycerin and 1 tablespoon of putty. That is, this is a recipe for those who do not want to use either flour or starch, and you
you can even not add putty. True, it helps to make the product smoother after drying, that is, it helps to achieve less shrinkage of the mass. As a result, you will get a lot with which you can coat a previously made foundation. You can take anything you like as the basis for all types of papier-mâché: cans, bottles, foil, plastic, polystyrene … Of course, you can use cardboard, but keep in mind that it can be deformed, both due to the presence of liquid in the mass, and because of further shrinkage. I can’t call this recipe ideal for this kind of papier-mâché, but it’s easy to make. Can frozen papier-mâché be cut? And what is the best way to cut out a door for sweets, a hemisphere, etc.? Do not crumble the edges? Ideally, it is better to outline the future hole even during sculpting, so it will be easier to cut it later. But, even if you do not, papier-mâché can be carefully cut with a sharp clerical knife. The main thing is not to rush or try to make a cut in one movement. But the second ideal papier-mâché for me was the recipe at number 4. This is again a papier-mâché for pasting a prepared base. But in this recipe we will not use paper towels or paper, but cardboard egg trays. We grind 50 grams of trays, and it’s not necessary as finely as mine, it’s just more convenient for me to store them. And pour boiling water. Let stand for 10 minutes and grind in a blender until smooth porridge. How to tint the mass so that it is immediately colored? If you want, you can add gouache, acrylic or any dye to the mass, but keep in mind that when it dries, the color of the product will become several tones lighter. How can I color finished products? Absolutely any paint. I paint with acrylic, because it, unlike gouache and watercolor, is not washed off with water, but unfortunately I can’t work with oil. We squeeze out excess water with our hands and put it in a container in which we will knead papier-mâché. By the way, you do not need to squeeze very much, otherwise you may have lumps in the mass. I have a squeezed weight of 212 grams. Back to the questions. Can children work with such a mass? Here you need to understand what age of children are you asking about? It’s much more interesting for kids to play with the same salty dough than with papier-mâché, by the way, if you are interested in master classes
for salt dough, write in the comments. My daughter was 5 years old and papier-mâché was not interested in her, but the homemade plasticine, the recipe of which is also on my channel, is ideal for her purposes. If the question is about schoolchildren, then I do not see any restrictions – they definitely will not want to eat this mass, so of course you can. Do you coat your products with varnish? And, if so, how? If possible, I try to cover, if I do something as a gift, then be sure, if for myself, I can forget about it. Since I paint with acrylic, I use acrylic varnish accordingly, I cover large items with acrylic spray varnish, and small ones with brush acrylic varnish. Let’s get back to the mass. Add 150 grams of PVA (I have 100 grams of universal and 50 grams of carpentry, but you can use only universal or carpentry or any other), 1 tablespoon of glycerin or any cosmetic oil, approximately 85 grams of putty and 80 grams of starch. Knead the mass properly and put it in a plastic bag or sealed container in the refrigerator for about 10-12 hours. Usually I knead the mass in the evening, and start working with it only the next day, so that the mass has time to stand and become homogeneous. This applies to all my papier-mâché recipes. And how do products carry time? How durable are they? After complete drying, if the product is not exposed to moisture, time is not scary. Is it possible to make crafts for the street out of this mass? No, this mass is not suitable for street crafts, even if you cover the craft with several layers of varnish, there is still a risk that the product will absorb moisture and deteriorate. Is it possible to make dishes from this mass? It is possible, but only for decorative purposes, to eat from such dishes is certainly not worth it. How to make the surface smooth? The mass according to the 1st recipe is smoothed with hands or a brush with plain water, for the rest of the masses it is better to use diluted PVA glue. The better you level the surface at the sculpting stage, the smoother the product will be in the end. This mass is good in that it can be coated with balloons, make various houses and figurines out of it, and she can be filled with shallow molds, as a result you will get products with something resembling cutting down for scrapbooking. The surface of the finished product is quite smooth and does not require grinding, the products are durable and light. The mass dries, like all other types of papier-mâché from this video, just in the air, about 1 mm per day. We pass to the 5th recipe. Pour 200 grams of crushed egg trays with water and cook for about 30 minutes. Or you can fill the trays with boiling water and leave for several hours until softened. Now we need to grind this mixture into a homogeneous porridge, the better you chop the trays, the more uniform the mass will turn out. Here, a lot depends on your blender, for example, my blender from a past recipe, copes with this task much better,
than the one you see on the screen now, You can also use a hand blender. Now we need to squeeze out the water very well. It is convenient to do this through gauze or a laundry bag, or, as I do, through a mosquito net. How to glue parts together and how to fasten with a cardboard base? According to the first recipe, it is enough to simply moisten the mass with water at the place of gluing; The weight of the pressed mass, I got 880 grams. Add about 190 grams of PVA and mix well. Then add 100 grams of putty and mix well again. It remains to add about 180 grams of starch, mix well and our mass is ready. I prepared the mass, tried to make prints in molds and was faced with the fact that there were small fibers at the edges, although the casting itself turned out to be smooth, good. Does this indicate insufficient kneading, or is everyone facing this problem? You did everything right, this is a feature of papier-mâché, all fibers can be removed with sandpaper or trimmed carefully with scissors. Why did the product crack on drying? Most likely we are talking about the mass deposited on some basis, for example, on a balloon. Apparently you made a very thin layer, when dried, the mass shrunk, and the base remained the same size, as a result of this, cracks appeared. Try to make a papier-mâché layer no thinner than 2-3 mm. In the following videos, I will show how to work with each of the masses shown and answer questions about modeling. From this mass it’s good to make a base, namely to paste balloons over it. According to the previous recipe, you need to coat the ball with two layers of mass with the obligatory complete intermediate drying. And with a mass according to this recipe, one layer will be enough to get a solid foundation, for example, for a great kinder surprise. Of course, the surface will not be as smooth as that of 1 and 4 recipes, but you can, firstly, sand the workpiece, but I’m very process
I don’t like it, so immediately go to the second. You can grease a workpiece with weight according to the 4th recipe from above and get a strong and smooth workpiece for your creativity. Well, if you want to sculpt from this mass, then, of course, you can try, but it is better to cook papier-mâché according to the 1st recipe. If after watching this video, you have any new questions, write them in the comments and I will answer them. And I also want to please the fans of papier-mâché: in the process, I have several videos on the modeling of various types of masses of papier-mâché, therefore, as soon as I finish and process all the material, you can see how to make these houses, this angel, and something else, so stay tuned! Well, that’s all for today, so I say goodbye to you, I wish you all a great mood and creative success! See you soon! Bye Bye!
