    Hi Jennifer. My mixture of celluckay didn’t come out in lumpy clumps like your. Maybe I mixed too thoroughly cuz directions said leave no white powder so I kept mixing. Also at first my mixture was too wet and would not have stuck to mold. End result is pretty smooth. I’m going to order more and try again.

      I am definitely going to try this project again! I have another bag of the celluclay down in my studio…just need a rainy day to want to stay inside and do it!

    Love it, and thank you for your “organic” details and links.
    My weakness is wanting to do so much at one time…and you know how that turns out.

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      LOL Sandra!!! That is my life…I’m always working on so many projects at the same time!!

  3. I have to admit at first I thought, this looks pretty rough. But once it was done it looks fabulous! Really does look authentic. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas. You’ve inspired some new ideas for me. Wonderful piece. Thanks again. -Linda

      You and me both Linda!! This was definitely one of those projects that I had my doubts about until it was done!

  4. I think the bowl is sensational. Looks like it was taken from a cave in the Middle East.
    I wonder after it is fully cured if it could be sprayed with Neverwet and put outside. I think I will try that and get back to you in a couple of years after it is all done. It will probably take a very long time to cure but it’s worth it.
    Thank you for sharing.

      Thanks!! I’m going to make a smooth bowl next. I’ll look for the Neverwet too!

  5. Jennifer,
    I’ve wanted to try this but never have. I’d like to share a link on my Sunday, Dirt Road Adventures. Thanks for the inspiration.

      Thanks so much, Rachel!! I’m going to try making a smooth, smaller bowl next.

  6. You’re bowl is awesome!!! So cool! You in a hat…LOVE!!!

    I do not see the powdered medium. All I’m finding is the clay already wet and soft. Will this work? Also, did you use acrylic paint? Did you see the bowl with a finishing spray? How much “clay” do you need? One pound, five pound? Thx, Sharon

    1. Jennifer Howard says:

      Hi Sharon,
      I used 1 lb of the CelluClay product that I linked and all I had to do was add water to it…there wasn’t any added glue or anything for this paper mache.
      -It will totally depend on the size of the bowl you are using for a mold as to how much you would need but 1 pound did a decent-sized bowl. For an oversized bowl then I think 2 pounds would work.
      -I used a mix of acrylic and chalk paint because that’s what I had on hand but they both worked perfectly.
      – I didn’t bother to seal it but I am just going to use it for artificial plants.
      Let me know that you saw this, if not I will shoot you an email with all the info you need! Thanks for stopping by- Jennifer
