Papier-mache
Papier-mache

Papier-mache is made from paper mixed with glue, chalk, and other ingredients, then molded and baked. It becomes very hard and can be painted. Boxes, trays, and furniture were made of papier-mache. Some of the nineteenth-century pieces were decorated with mother-of-pearl. Papier-mache is still being used to make small toys, figures, candy containers, boxes, and other giftwares. English citizen Henry Clay first patented papier-mache in 1772. Furniture made of papier-mache is listed in the Furniture category.
