Gourmet Paper Mache

Not your third grade paper mache

I’m always thrilled when people use my books and videos to make something they love.   Makes me feel like a grandpa to these projects.  Here are some more photos of paper mache art people have sent to me. If you would like me to post your photos, send them to me at, dan@gourmetpapermache.com.   Enjoy!

This is Oliver (the nice looking one) from Australia.   He decided to make something terrifying!  And he got it!   Oliver wants you to meet “Thinnamie”.    Perfection!

Here are some wonderful projects that Veronique Smeulders made to hang where she works, in a home for the elderly in Belgium.  She thought the decorations would brighten their day.   Sounds like they did that and more!   It helped bring the artist out in Veronique!  The projects are magnificent.

First, this very cool head!  Great textures!

      Hello Karla. Life got in the way of my art for a while. I’m back to working on my art again. Hopefully I’ll have something to show soon.

    Btw how fo you ship you art? I put one of my dragons that i made with your book on a museum for a tome, and when they returned it to me the teeth and horns where broken 🙁

      Shipping sculpture is not easy. I build custom containers made specifically for the piece of art I am shipping. It is very time consuming. But I don’t want things breaking en route. I often say (mostly in jest but with some truth) that it takes more work to build the shipping crate that to make the art project.

      If you lent a piece of art to a museum then it was their responsibility to get it back to you unbroken. They should have hired a professional to make the shipping container. It is not acceptable for them to damage your work!
