Children’s Crafts: Paper Mache Lizards : Paper Mache Lizard: Wrapping the Armature 2

So we're going to continue to paper machethe lizard using the same techniques to dunk the newspaper and wrap it around.

You wantto be really careful around the body part, here, because that's the part where we madethe structure to be rounded and we want to keep it that same shape.

This is the partwhere sometimes the body will collapse.

You want to make sure that doesn't happen.

Wecan choose some smaller pieces for the legs or areas that are a little smaller that don'tquite as much newspaper.

We would just want to make sure that we are coating, coatingall the way around.

Again, this is a sculpture, so we want to make sure that all pieces arewrapped and covered and it can be viewed from all sides.

So we can turn it over on its backand continue to paper mache all the way up the body to the head.

This one’s a littlefolded and that one didn't get coated all the way, I want to make sure that I alwayshave a good coating.

And when the newspaper is wet with the paper mache it's a lot easierto manipulate and you can fold and wrap, and really make it do what you want.

Wrap it around.

And, once you've covered the legs, and the head, and the body, you want to make surethat and give it a good look over to make sure that the rest of the body has been coveredcompletely.
