A Chick made from a Polystyrene Egg covered with Pulp and with Bonsai Wire Feet
This chubby chick is made from a polystyrene egg which is covered with papier-mâché pulp. Long legs are modelled from Bonsai wire and pushed into the body. When dry it is painted with Plus Color craft paint.
How to do it
Soak papier-mâché pulp in water using the ratio: 3 parts pulp to 1 part water.
For increased adhesion, add 1/2 tbsp glue lacquer per 2 dl mass of papier-mâché pulp and water. Knead the mixture well and leave to rest for 1 hour.
Cover the polystyrene egg by distributing the papier-mâché pulp evenly. Model eyes, a beak and wings. Press them on and smooth them out at the joints.
Model each leg with a foot from one long piece of bonsai wire. Push both legs into the polystyrene egg from underneath. Leave to dry for 2-8 days depending on the size of the chick.
Paint the chick according to your taste and leave to dry. We have used opaque Plus Color craft paint.
