Item Description...
Over 20 diverse projects are included

Contemporary Papier Mache is a colorful collection of papier mache projects by artist and teacher Gilat Nadivi. With an emphasis on recycling everyday items to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces, Nadivi 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
very disapointing  Nov 6, 2008
It is so sad to see how cheep and distastfull the products are.
This book is a disgrace to every thing good about the wonderful material- papier mache and what has been done with it in the recent years . Papier mache is the medium, it can be made into art and it can be amateur like. What a pity!
Using plastic instead of cardboard also totally misess the point of resycling which papiermache is proud to be part of today.
Look at other books!
papier mache  Jun 6, 2008
I am just starting on papier mache n didnt realise there were so many different ways of approaching it, this book will give you lots of ideas for beginners, i think u could take this craft into bigger n greater projects but certainly gets the artistic juices going, the book is great for me tk u
fascinating, fast and fabulous!  Jun 2, 2008
This is a lovely book both for the professional artist or the beginner. I am an artist but have never tried paper mache and this book gives easy to follow instructions and beautiful images of the finished works.
I can't wait to have a go and I think that's a pretty good recommendation of a book that gives you the inspiration to create immediately!
Obviously you can interpret the works with your own artistic flair and who knows where that can take you!
