Description

Contemporary Papier Mache is a colorful collection of papier mache projects by artist and teacher Gilat Nadiri. With an emphasis on recycling everyday items to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces, Nadiri instructs readers on how simple materials, basic techniques, and a healthy measure of imagination can be combined to make a range of distinctive creations. Projects described in the book are diverse; they include human figures engaged in everyday activities, animals that are tall, small and in between, home accessories such as picture frames, bowls and magnets, and more.Recycling is an inherent component of almost all papier mache, and Contemporary Papier Mache really takes this principle to heart. Old wires and hangers act as bases for human figures, empty rolls of tape become fashionable bangles, discarded water bottles are transformed into women's figures. After trying out a few projects in the book, readers will find their eyes open to the artistic potential waiting to be discovered in basements, garages, and recycling boxes.Tools for these projects are minimal, and supplies are easy to find. As for guidance and inspiration, readers will find plenty of both within the pages of Contemporary Papier Mache. The book begins with a chapter on materials that describes the supplies readers will need for the projects. This includes basic materials such as papers, glues, work surfaces and paints, as well as fabrics and other decorative enhancements. It also includes suggestions about items that can be reused (and revived!) through papier mache. The techniques chapter describes various papier mache methods as well as painting and lacquer application.
