 Decopatch Paper Maché Reindeer

Decopatch paper comes in many vibrant colors and designs and is perfect for decorating simple paper mache forms such as these reindeer. Because of the brilliance of the paper, you do not need to base coat the figures before adding the paper.

Decopatch Paper Mache Reindeer 330




Time required: about 2-3 hours because of drying time

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List for this Reindeer:

- paper maché reindeer such as these below

Paper Maché Reindeer 250
- decopatch paper in design of choice
- gold paint for antlers and hoofs
- decopatch glue (this glue not only works excellent with the
  decopatch paper, but also has a shiny finish)
- flat paint brush for applying paper
- round paint brush for painting antlers and hoofs


1. Tear your decopatch paper in many small pieces.

2. Start adding decopatch glue to an area of the reindeer and then add the paper over the glue. Brush glue over the paper to seal. Continue adding glue and paper to the reindeer until all areas except the antlers and hoofs are covered.

3. Use gold paint to paint the antlers and hoofs. It may be necessary to add a second coat if the first coat does not cover appropriately.
