Paper Glue

Paper glue′s are available in many different forms, but perhaps the easiest and cleanest to use is the solid stick form. Most paper models may be assembled using this type of glue. Although, some of the more sophisticated may require a PVA type glue to be used for greater strength.

Paper Punch

These are used to scrap booking and card making. You can buy different shapes and use them to cut out uniform shapes from photos, paper, magazines etc.



Papier Mache

A mixture of paper and glue that can be moulded around shapes and when set forms a hard robust material that can be painted. Ideal for masks, boxes or pinata.

We made a papier mache pinata around a balloon and then painted it and filled with sweets.


Pastels

Art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. Great to use as you can smudge, blend colours and make bold colours.

Once you have finished, shake the paper to remove any excess material and then fix the image using hair spray.



Pencils

There are many different forms of paint types of pencils.

Nothing better than a tin full of colouring pencils.



Pinata

A paper container often in the form of an animal filled with sweets and treats. Great fun at kids parties where they can smash them apart.

Plaster of Paris

Produced by heating gypsum to about 150°C. You can buy it as a dry powder that you mix with water.

After mixing with water you can pour into a mould and leave to set. Once set remove from the mould and leave to dry, the result is a hard plaster sculpture that can be painted.



Primer

This is the first complete coat of paint applied to a surface. Such paints are designed to provide adequate adhesion to new surfaces. Take time and get the finish correct at this stage and this will result in a superior final top gloss finish.
