WHAT IS PAPER MACHE?
Paper Mache is one of the most popular of crafts practiced in Kashmir. The tradition of the Kashmir paper Mache has its origin rooted in the 15th century when king Zain-Ul-Abidin invited accomplished artists and craftsmen from Central Asia. Paper Mache is in fact a unique combination of line and color on molded forms of a variety of objects. It involves ornamentation in color over smoothened surfaces made of paper pulp or layers of paper. Paper pulp is not always found effective and is sometimes replaced by other substitutes.
To make paper Mache, firstly paper is soaked in water till it disintegrates. It is then pounded, mixed with an adhesive solution, shaped over moulds and allowed to dry and set before being painted and varnished. Paper that has been pounded to pulp has the smoothest finish in the final product. The designs painted on objects of paper Mache are brightly colored. They vary in artistry and the choices of colors. Gold is used on most objects, either as the only color, or as the highlight for certain motifs and besides the finish of the product, it is the quality of the gold used which determines the prices.
