How to make a tree out of newspaper and mod-rock (plaster of Paris bandage).


First we scrunched some newspaper up to form the shape of a tree and used tape to hold the shape in place.

Then we soaked the mod-rock in cold water and gently squeezed the excess water out.

Next we wrapped the bandage around the newspaper, starting at the trunk and working our way up to the top of each branch. We then waited for a few minutes for it to dry before adding the next layer.

When the plaster had dried we carefully painted the tree with acrylic paint and some of us decorated it with ivy.

We had lots of fun!
