Belly Paper Mache


Is or has anyone done this? Did it work for you?

I want to do it, I think its a great keepsake to remember how big you were. A friend of mine had the idea of getting family and friends to write messages to LO on it and putting it in the nursery.

I havent personally done it but a friend has! its cute. They sell molding castes that would be easier to see the writing rather than using newspaper

I always thought it was just the typical paper mache but I just googled it and seen the molding cast kits. It would definitely be a lot easier because the kits come with everything you need. So excited to do this now

Lol when we made anything that was paper mache we used strips of newspaper. Idk maybe were just cheap haha.

yeahh the casts turn out really cute too! and its alot harder then paper mache so it will probably stay intact longer

Ya like paper mache balloons and stuff right? I did that stuff too. I don't think its cheap haha.

but i think using the molding instead of paper mache might be better for a belly cast. Make it smoother than doing the regular newspaper

paper mache is like strips of newspaper and then the glue you use is flour and water. You mix the four and water together to get a glue like paste and dip the newspapers in it and place them on whatever you wanted to make a mold of. Its pretty easy actually.
