Papier-Mâché Planets

Papier-Mache Planets

During the first half of the Summer Term, we spent our art lessons planning and creating papier-mache planets for our space display.

First, we explored the colour, texture and patterns observed in the different planets, using oil pastels to help us blend. After this, we used a PVA glue and water solution, as well as newspaper, to form three layers of papier-mache. Finally, we used the learning from exploring the aesthetics of the planets to paint our final planet.
