Make a papier mache trinket tray with Kate Rolison

You will need:

  • Something to cover your table or work surface, such as a plastic table cover or newspaper.
  • A plastic tub or cardboard box to use as your trinket tray.
  • An old newspaper, magazine or brochure, plain flour and warm water to make your papier mache.
  • White paint (acrylic or poster paint work best).
  • Colourful poster paint or acrylic paint — I’ve used blue and red.
  • Paint brushes and something to mix your paint in such as an old jar lid or empty yoghurt pot.
