If you use an Exercise Ball, clown costumes for kids then you it’s going to keep its shape and air supply better over several days of paper mache glue and drying and painting time. If the squares are too large, they will look folded and wrinkled over the areas of paper mache that didn’t dry completely smooth. I found that using my hands made it dry smoother. 5. After each layer of Paper mache, let it dry at least 6 hours before you add another layer. One entire layer around the whole ball takes about 1.5-2 hours. 10. Have someone hold the ball for you while you use a permanent marker on the ball exactly where you want to cut the holes. Have someone drill holes through each end the wooden dowels for your rope to go through. I didn’t do this (since it would be very time consuming) but I definitely lost some sparkle by the end of the night….
I think I did about 6 layers, but I’m not sure since I didn’t do the entire ball each time I added paper. I think an Exercise Ball would be a better option, because my balloon kept deflating every couple days and didn’t keep its shape, which caused the paper mache to bend and warp. 8. After the paint has dried, it’s time to pop your Balloon, or deflate your exercise Ball. Use the gray paint to touch up any areas that need it, like the top of the holes where you cut through the paper mache, or on the wooden dowels that are showing at the bottom of the disco ball. 12. Cut down your metallic silver paper, or mirror stickers, into small squares. Tip: If using mirror stickers, it is best to remove the backing before gluing the squares on the ball. The smaller the square, the better the Disco Ball will look, and the better it will stick over any wrinkles in the paper mache base.
If you don’t want to get rope-burn on your skin (and who does, right?), it’s better to dance the night away with the rope straps OVER your clothes, not under your jacket and rubbing on your skin. You will wear these ropes over your shoulders, and then you can knot the bottom of the rope at the correct height for wherever you want to wear the ball on your body! You can use your hands or a paintbrush to glue the papers down on the ball. 13. Use diluted PVA wood glue (add very little water), or undiluted PVA craft glue (Elmer’s Glue) to stick the squares to the ball. Mix some PVA Wood Glue into a plastic tub or bowl with water. Mix 1 part glue to 4 parts water, using a wooden stirring stick (or a paint stick). I learned a lot along the way… including the best kind of glue to use, the best size squares to cut, and the sturdiest way to wear the ball to protect it from getting damaged. I found that diluted Wood Glue dries much smoother and stronger than diluted Craft Glue (Elmer’s Glue)… and you want it to be strong since you’ll be wearing it and might get bumped into at a party!
25-45) that will give you name tags, game pieces, a party planning guide, invitations, bottle bags and information guides for your guests. PARTY THE NIGHT AWAY. Also, larger squares will make it look like a less-realistic version of a disco ball… So take the time and cut the squares down to a smaller size (roughly 1 inch x 1 inch or smaller). I painted the ball in sections, and then added the squares one row at a time. 6. Do at least 4 layers of Paper mache around your Ball. Apply a sunscreen of at least 15 SPF on the face, shoulders, arms or any exposed areas. The dress is a full length gown with screen print bone outlines on the arms and bodice. It includes a dress, short in the front featuring skull screen prints on the bodice and skirt. The dinosaur jumpsuit is inflated by a small battery operated fan and once it is blown up, the child can see out of a face hole found in the neck of the costume.
Of course, you can also follow the superhuman theme with an overweight twist and go in for a Batman, Robin, Joker, Superman, Spiderman, or Superwoman costume along with a matching face mask to show you in well-padded comic colors. 4 p.m. Youngsters 12 and under can take a photo with the Easter Bunny, cavort in fun bounce houses and enjoy great music.
