Welcome! This is a site about Paper Mache.   This is my new, revised website.  It is still under construction.  Please be patient.   I will have it up to full speed soon.  Mostly I’m behind re-posting the 25 or so pages I had of other people’s paper mache art.  I am getting there.   But it has been a nightmare finding all the photos.    In case you are wondering, my last webhost suspended my website because I was using too much bandwidth.   Hard to imagine.  So I had to scramble and get this new site up and running quickly.  So if you are one of the many people who have sent me photos, I apologize profusely.   The links you had before no longer work.   Please look through the “Your Photos” pages to find your photos and grab then grab the page.  It won’t change again, I promise.   If you can’t find your photos, or if I’ve made a mistake moving these files, please let me know and I’ll correct them.  You can contact me at dan@GourmetPaperMache.com.   Thanks you for your patience!  By the way, people ask me all the time why I give away my paper mache techniques.  Well, check out Kiran with his monster below. That’s why.  And, it really feels like that little paper mache monster is my grandchild.   So look through the “Your Paper Mache” pages while you are here.

My name is Dan Reeder.  I’m a paper mache artist living in Seattle, Washingmachine.   I’ve been using my own non-traditional paper mache methods for more than four decades.  I’ve spent most of that time trying to convince the world to give this under-rated, under-utilized art form a try.   Maybe this site will do it for you.  Paper mache is simply a wonderful vehicle for artistic self-expression.

So take a look around.  Follow the links at the top of the page to see some of “My Paper Mache.”   I love to show off the work of other paper mache artists as well.  So as mentioned, check out, “Your Paper Mache.”   Perhaps that will be enough to get you interested in my paper mache techniques.  If so, you might want to look at my latest, “Paper Mache Videos.”    I do have how-to paper mache books.  Look at “My Books” if you are interested.   They explain everything I know about paper mache.   I do sell my work once in a while.   So I have a “Art for Sale” page as well.  There is more “About Me” and “Site Map” (for spiders who are lost).  What else?  Oh yes, I have a “Blog” page that leads to my blog.   My blog is called, Gourmet Paper Mache Blog.    That’s where you can see what I’m working on at the moment.  I also detail the making of many of my projects on my blog.  I offer commentary about paper mache, and anything else that pops into my mind.  Finally, because I get asked the same questions over and over and over I decided to add a “FAQ” page.   Thank you for stopping by!

Oh…while you are here….

I participate in the “Top 100 craft site” report.  If you like my site please cast your vote for me by clicking the link below.  (Since I’m the only paper mache site on the list, I think that casting a vote for my site is really casting a vote for paper mache as an art form).  It will open a window for you to view the top craft sites.    Check some of them out or stay here and browse.  Either way, thank you for visiting!  And thanks for your support of my rather eccentric art style.
