Paper maché surfboard treasure box
I had a little more fun with the surfboard theme - this time I used CelluClay to mold a treasure box and lid in the shape of a surfboard.
CelluClay is kind of like working with paper maché - only instead of wet messy paper strips and glue that you have to wrap over some kind of armature, this is a paper powder that you mix with water to make a type of air-dry clay. It has a texture like oatmeal, but you can work with it to create lots of shapes and it has a nice rigidity when it's dry.
Instead of painting my paper maché surfboard treasure box, I decided to wrap it with a couple different fun and summery printed duct tapes. Click here for my full tutorial - and ride those crafty waves!
