Brief History of papier machie

The word papier Machie is actually derived from the french word 'papier Mach' meaning chewed paper.To make papier machie first paper is soaked in water till it disintegrates.It is then pounded mixed with an adhesive solution,shaped over different moulds and allowed to dry and set before being painted and varnished.Paper that has been pounded to pulp has the smoothest finish in the final product.When the pounding has not been so through the finish is less smooth.
At first glance all papier machie objects look roughly the same and the price differntial seems almost unreasonable.However besides at least three different grades of papier machie,Some is actually Cardboard or wood.The idea however is not to hoodwink the unwary,but to promote a cheaper product for someone who wants the look of the papier machie.The designs painted on objects of papier machie are brightly coloured.The vary in artistry and choice of colours,and it is not difficult to tell a medicore piece from an excellent one.Gold is used on most objects either as the only colour or as a highlight for certian motifs.Varnish,which is applied to the finished product,imparts a high gloss and smoothness which increases with every coat.
