Papier-mâché Faux Bois Containers From Poopscape

Energy & Sustainability Home

About a week ago, Claire from Poopscape posted a teaser picture of a project in progress to her Flickr stream. There were some hints and guesses for papier-mâché, and when her tutorial went up it was better than most papier-mâché projects I’ve seen around. She’s created these fantastic faux bois containers from mostly recycled materials. What I really love is that she includes a peek at her first attempt at this project (more than two years ago!) and shares her trials and tribulations with making it a success.
