High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Papier-m[ch (French for
'chewed-up paper', due to its appearance), commonly called
paper-m[ch, is a construction material that consists of pieces of
paper, sometimes reinforced with textiles, stuck together using a
wet paste (e.g., glue, starch, or wallpaper adhesive). The crafted
object becomes solid when the paste dries. Carton-pierre (French
for 'stone cardboard') is papier-m[ch that has been decorated to
resemble wood, stone, or metal, and is used as decoration.
Papier-m[ch paste is the substance that holds the paper together.
The traditional method of making papier-m[ch paste is to use a
mixture of water and flour or other starch, mixed to the
consistency of heavy cream. While any adhesive can be used if
thinned to a similar texture, such as polyvinyl acetate based glues
(wood glue or white Elmer's glue), the flour and water mixture is
the most economical.
