|Papier Mache How To: Napkin Rings|
I tore equal strips of tissue paper from the colors I wanted. I decided on the size by imagining the feel of forming the pepper shapes. I could then feel approximately how much wet tissue I would need.
Using the same water and glue mixture that I used to make the
rings, I covered the strips, one at a time. When I felt that they were moist enough to form shapes, I lightly pressed them into pepper forms. I pressed each form onto a ring, lightly pressing along the sides to make a good seal with the curved surface.
When all rings had a pepper, I worked with them until they closely resembled each other. Some I had to alter their angle. Others I had to elongate or shorten. To one I had to add an additional tiny strip of tissue, along the length on top of it, until I was satisfied with it's form.
All in all, I am happy with the results. Next I attach the green stems. They will probably be tissue paper too.
