This Is Not Your Average Paper Mache Creation

Aug 20, 2015 By Madeleine Brown
When you think of paper mache, you likely imagine a classroom full of small children, all working on a simple yet messy art project. You probably have a vague memory of something involving a balloon with newspaper brushed onto it. Whatever you imagine, you probably don't immediately think of incredibly intricate pieces of art. Seattle-based paper mache artist Dan Reeder knows all about paper mache's reputation, and he aims to turn it on its head.

Dan has been working with paper mache for over 40 years and, during that time, has found new ways to amp up the sophistication factor of his craft. In addition to sculpting dragons and other various monsters, Dan is also an author, having published a number of books about his passion for paper mache and a number of guide books to show those interested in the craft all of its possibilities.
