Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Modern papier-mache has come a long way from the traditional mix of wet, macerated newspapers. Today there is a commercial papier-mache that works up like modeling clay and readily lends itself to molding and painting. Fabric mache, or molding with pieces of fabric, is also made easier with the use of commercial stiffeners. The projects in this book, provided by ten designers, range from dolls to Christmas ornaments and are mainly of a type suitable for school or camp crafts. Each project has step-by-step instructions and a color photograph of the finished product. In some cases, additional pictures or diagrams of the stages of construction would have been useful. This is not an essential purchase for most craft collections and is recommended only for public libraries needing up-to-date material on this subject.

From Booklist

With the help of 10 professional artists, Cusick demonstrates what a bit of paper or fabric, glue or stiffener, and water can become. She provides written directions and color photographs for each of 100 projects, ranging from children-oriented piggy banks, jewelry, and holiday ornaments, to very sophisticated sculptures (e.g., a pink flamingo in a tub) and home accessories (e.g., a rococo clock). She assumes her readers have a certain amount of crafts knowledge, particularly a familiarity and facility with paints and crochet. Cusick concludes with a m{ƒ}ach{‚}e gallery showcasing the zenith of this craft. Barbara Jacobs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a great book, it deserves five stars, Dawn Cusick , a talented artist, includes many other ideas from other fine artist also. There is ideas for every occasion , from Easter with the instant mache bunnies to birthday party piñatas you make from paper and glue from around the house . You will enjoy creating your own designs using Dawn's no mistake recipes, she has a great technique section , and she shows you all the tools for any beginner to start creating . Paper or fabric that you would have thrown into the land fills , instead you can feel good about making something as small as costume jewelry . Halloween is a real fun time with all the different mask you can create! You got to get this one if you are a designer!

This is a treasure trove of beautiful and fun projects in paper mache and fabrics. There is something for everyone in the family here. Picnic basket, doggie bed, figures, wall hangings, animals, planters, bowls, jewelry are just a few of the 100 projects in this book. Full color photo's and instructions to follow or use as a springboard for your own imagination. My stash of fabric remnants from quilting has come in handy. I have made accessories for the bedrooms that match the quilts. There are plenty of projects for the kids too. Piñatas, beads for jewelry making, hats, Halloween and Christmas ornaments. It's been a great outdoors activity at the picnic table for me and the kids. I'm going to make the Victorian style boxes next. The kids want to do the honey bear and a clock for their dresser. Plenty of delightful projects for the family and friends this summer.

I bought this book for example and reference for my art students and it serves that purpose well. I would recommend this book to any one.

I got the book and I do love the projects in the book as they have some nice and unique ideas. I was hoping for more photos on the how to make the projects. Some people are visual learners and seeing the process would have made a lot of the projects easier to understand. The methods were not hard to follow but I would have loved the visual cues. Other than that it is a cute book.

I bought some paper mache balls that I want to paint. I was hoping to find information on painting and applying a seal. This book did not include this information. I really didn't think the projects in the book were very "imaginative," either. I ended up just throwing the book out.
