Contemporary Papier Mâché

Artist and teacher Gilat Nadivi has compiled a colorful collection of papier mâché projects in this book that emphasizes recycling everyday items to create more than 20 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 mâché, and Contemporary Papier Mâché: Colorful Sculpture, Jewelry, and Home Accessories really takes this principle to heart. Old wires and hangers act as bases for human figures, empty rolls of tape become fashionable bangles, and discarded water bottles are transformed into women's figures. After trying out a few projects in the book, readers will have their eyes opened to the artistic potential waiting to be discovered in basements, garages, and recycling boxes.

Tools for the projects are minimal, and supplies are easy to find. As for guidance and inspiration, readers will find plenty of both. The book begins with a chapter on materials, including 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 mâché.

The techniques chapter describes various papier mâché methods as well as painting and lacquer application.

The book contains 125 photos and illustrations overall.
