Palim Palim Fantasy Head Paper Mache Costume



For this homemade Palim Palim fantasy  head costume I used a large balloon for the mold – and several little balloons. I fixed them with adhesive tape together.

I bought wallpaper paste from the store and employ a lot of daily-journal paper. I cut the paper into strips that are about 8 inches long. To make the work easier, you can put the balloon in a bucket to hold him.

Apply the glue to both sides of the paper strips, then start covering the balloon. After about 2 layers allow to dry overnight and then apply another 3-4 layers overall. Fix it all with adhesive tape, hot glue and wood sticks on a helmet. Then fix the eyes (with eyelashes) on the head with bolt and nut and hot glue.

When the head is dry, cut a hole for looking out and begin to color it
