For any artists who would like to know how to create paper mache paste for a project, this video is great to watch. For this project, you will need some Elmer's glue and water. After emptying an entire bottle of Elmer's glue into a bowl, add about 1/4 the amount of water to the mixture. You will then need to mix the paste and water mixture thoroughly in order to get an even consistency. You will then be able to stick your newspaper onto your mold using this paste mixture.
