Paper Mache Products by DC&C

DC and C Logo

History of Paper Mache

Also known as papier-mâché, paper-mache, papermache,  or papier maché... was invented in China at the beginning of the 2nd century A.D. Paper mache literally means chewed paper, and it historically has involved various complicated techniques and materials.  Paper in pulp, strips, or sheet form was held together with binders such as hide glue or natural resins.  Fillers were added to the paper and glue mix to give a smoother surface or add strength.  Paper mache is lightweight, hard and strong and some types could be worked like wood.  Pieces were finished using lacquer, inlay, paint, or varnish.  Hofcraft carries paper mache of all shapes and sizes, that are ready to paint or decorate. 
Choose from a wide variety of paper mache including: round boxes, square boxes, rectangle boxes, oval boxes, hexagon boxes, hearts and star boxes, hat boxes, French corner boxes, vintage canister box set, Christmas tree and star boxes, totes, pumpkins (including a 3 piece set), decorative trays (not intended to use with food), hearts, stars, birdhouse ornaments, steeple people, pot bellies and witches hats.
