Children’s Crafts: Paper Mache Lizards : Paper Mache Lizard: Drying

Once your lizard is wrapped completely inthe paper mache, he's ready to dry.

This is going to take about a day or two, dependingon how well ventilated the area is.

You want to make sure that he's on a surface that hecan dry from all sides.

If not, we're going to turn him over half way through that dryingperiod.

He's already coming apart there, if he does, we can always push it back together,but we want to make sure that he gets an opportunity to dry from all angles.

So, a good place todry him would be like in sunny window, near a heating vent, also, you could put him ona rack.

We want to make sure that we're not putting him on a material that he could stickto, like other newspaper, or also, a table, things like that.

Paper mache is a stickymedium and it's going to stick to what ever it's sitting on.

So we want to make sure thathe's on something like wax paper or foil, or like a wire rack that's going to let himdry from the bottom, and also from the top.

Sunny window is the best place.
