Hello my name’s Sharmah (His_Moon_child from the Melbourne goth forum). Thanks for allowing me to participate in this community… although by no means an expert, I find craft and home decorating with a leaning toward a goth aesthetic to be all kinds of fun. One thing recently I’ve come across is the idea that papier-mâché may not be reserved for primary school students alone. It’s an interesting way of recycling paper using wallpaper glue, acrylic paint and varnish. This is a bowl I’ve made, a bit of a ‘test the water’ project, and although admittedly this particular item is far from perfect I wonder if it might be an interesting medium for other projects.
