Okay well I want to make my own planet made with plastercine. Can someone tell me if this would work please?

1. Blow up the balloon and paper mache it. Wait until its hard.

2. Melt plastercine and then pour it over the paper mache balloon.

3. Wait until its hard then add plastercine houses, trees and other things.

Would that work? Thanks for your help. :)

well, step 1 would definately work!
step to would be a bit harder! why not just paint it? then add plasticine decorations like trees and houses etc.?

Is this going to be on display or just for an animation?
if its for animation i dont reccomend trying to animate on a round surface, why not just animate on a set?
if it is for display purposes then it would still be best to paint the surface, then add plasticine decorations!

By the way, its plasticine, not plastercine ;)

Thanks! Yeah I just wasn't sure if the plasticine would sticko the paint. :)

Nope. It doesn't stick to the painted paper-mache.

melting it onto it should work
just go slow and be careful

I'm not sure if that would work but I think that would be a great experiment!

it depends on what plasticine you use. I use newplast and that does not melt completely. It might just be easier to stick blobs of plasticine on the paper mache and smooth over the gaps

if i was you i would use a football or a metel frame of some-sort and smooth the plastacine over it.

Wel in yr 5 we were doing aboriginal art and we made masks and decorated them with aboriginal patterns.

1) we blew up the ballon and drew in marker where we wanted the holes to be
2) then we paper mached it

5) we tried to keep them on our faces very har door me coz it was way too big!!!!!!!:D
