    I can't believe this thread!

    My partners children are coming to stay with us on the 27th (first time i'll have met them :eek: :D ) and I thought it would be great to make a papier mache piggy bank with them.... Are you guys psychic???!

    I've been saving toilet rolls to make the nose & legs, bought the baloons yesterday but I was planning to water down PVA to make the gluey bit.. anone know the quantities of glue to water??

    LOVED the ideas for other animals - thanks guys!

    :T :T :T

    phish dont use the pva glue use flour and water ~

    mix one cup of water with one cup of flour into a paste with little or no lumps
    boil 2 cups of water
    add the paste to the water and simmer for a few minutes while stiring
    allow to cool and use

    its non toxic to so it doesnt matter if they get messy/eat it :rotfl:to get he lumps out use a hand blender/wisker ~ works wonders

    I was wondering where this thread was.

    I'm hoping to make a pot tomorrow. The only problem is, I'm not sure we've got any balloons :confused:
    Is it better to aim for the stars and hit a tree or aim for a tree and land in its branches :think:
