In a marathon session, I apply all six layers of Brawny’s paper mache. I used stop motion pro for the time lapse, brown craft paper, Roman Brand premixed wallpaper paste, Vaseline, water, and patience. In the beginning I draw lines with a sharpie marker on one side of the paper. Then tear the factory cut edges off. I rip the paper into workable pieces and keep all of the lined sides facing up. I dip a piece into a bucket of water, crumple it in the water to loosen its fibers, then squeeze it and ring it out. i then unfold the wet paper and lay it flat in my left hand. I dip the fingers of my right hand into the wallpaper paste, and spread it onto both sides of the paper in my left hand. I then tear smaller pieces off of that and apply it. The lines I drew earlier help me keep track of how many layers I’ve done and what sections have not had a layer applied, by laying each layer identically. Layer 1: lines up, layer 2: lines down, etc. Use very small pieces where there is more detail like the face. Slightly larger pieces can be used where there is less detail. Don’t apply all of the layers in the same direction, be sure to overlap the edges, and apply all layers evenly. I stretched the time lapse frames in Premiere Elements to make it the same size as my earlier videos. Hopefully it won’t lose resolution.
