Papier Mache Mushrooms,
I've been working on these mushrooms for about 3 days trying out different paint techniques and today I finally got the look I wanted. And they look awesome all in a cluster.. I'm so pleased!
I constructed them from tin foil covered in masking tape then I added newspaper strips dipped in glue and water. I dried them in the oven for 20 minutes at 275 degrees.
Using acrylic paints the base coat is white and yellow mixed together. The 2nd coat was a mixture of yellow, white and brown. Once that was dry I used a dry brush with just a tiny bit of watered down brown and also painted the edges with a mix of watered down brown and
black. They were finished off with a glossy glaze. UPDATE: I now have a video tutorial on the smaller mushrooms right here.
I took some outside, it's rainy and wet today so they fit right into their surroundings!
I also made some bigger mushrooms but those need to be painted then I will do a video update on the Gnome house. If you haven't been following the Gnome dollhouse progress you can catch up on youtube right here.
See you soon!
