Make Miniature Tents
The first thing you do is make your mold. It is a durable object that can be used over and over if desired. You have a choice of a wide variety of materials when it comes to making the mold.
We used a combination of things to make our canvas style paper including cotton linters and brown paper bag.
The paper is made
And after a little drying it is ready for molding.
Depending on your mold and what you are trying to make you can apply the full sheet or you can cut it into pieces and apply the pieces. This is a bit of a complex build so we cut it into several pieces.
At any point during the molding you can wet your hand and moisten the paper. You can also spray it lightly with a spray bottle.
There you go! The paper is completely applied to the mold. Now let it dry!
Once it is dry use small tools to gently lift it up off the mold. It is paper so be careful.
You can see the various paper tent molds we made here. The one in the front has had it's dried tent removed (on the left).
