Bowl 12 - Bejazzled by Jenny MosherBowl 12
Bejazzled came about because I wanted to make something blingy in purple. I had lots of little decals from scrapbooking and cardmaking kits and wanted to make use of them. The bowl also incorporates bits of florist's ribbon and woven paper plus a sort of plasticy (is that a word?) tissue paper.
It's not suitable for children under four - too many small parts which could come loose - and probably not suitable for anyone other than a teenager. Or an adult who loves pink and purple and bling!

This series of papier mache bowls is created from self-supporting papier mache, bar the base which has been strengthened with a piece of recycled corrugated cardboard.
All bowls are made from a combination of recycled office and other paper, and some contain new paper for decorative purposes. The occasional bowl will also incorporate other media such as beads etc. The bowls are created using PVA glue and/or Bondcrete and are sealed with at least three coats of Cabot's Benchtop Clear food safe varnish.
Each bowl is unique.
The bowls are decorative only - while they are sealed and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth, they should not be immersed in any liquid, nor should they be placed in the dishwasher, oven or microwave.
While they've been sealed with a food safe varnish, I don't recommend using them as a storage bowl for fruit where the skin is intended to be eaten e.g. plums, apples, grapes etc. Thicker skin which will be peeled should be okay e.g. oranges, bananas, rockmelon etc.
No bowl is completely round, nor completely flat. While the structure starts off reasonably straight, it slowly takes on its own dents and warps as it grows.
